Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming up on Vulpes Libris

fox on trackThe Bookfoxes are getting back on track this week (and this would be the place to credit Phil at Delfryn Design for the accompanying photo “Fox on Track” reproduced here under a Creative Commons licence – clicking the image will load the source Flickr Page) with a week of nature, other worlds, twilight years and mad adventures.

Monday: In a VL Classic, Jackie reveals why DK’s big Smithsonian Natural History book would delight nature lovers of any age.

Tuesday: Kate reads Terry Pratchett’s Raising Steam, and sees how Discworld is changing.

Wednesday: Simon reads Diana Athill’s Somewhere Towards The End and has doubts somewhere towards the beginning.

Friday: Moira vicariously enjoys the journey of two American empty-nesters who took a couple of years out down The Wee Mad Road.

    I’m guessing Somewhere Towards the End isn’t going so well for Simon… bad luck especially so early in the year.

    Really like that photo, there’s an immediacy about it and I appreciate the wilderness setting.
