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 hatThe Bookfoxes have not been flooded out of their Den, nor are they snowed up and holed up, but they ARE reading a lot. It’s too cold to go hunting, so they’re getting on with the tottering book pile that has been blinking across the room in a winky-winky read-me-nowwwww sort of way. Here are their latest opinions.

Monday: Kirsty is out of breath as her post scheduled for last week finally makes it online. She is impressed – and disturbed – by Tana French’s most recent thriller.

Tuesday:  Simon has a jolly lovely time reading The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp.

Wednesday: Kate gobbles up Sara Maitland’s short stories of science speculation (say that fast after a drink), Moss Witch and Other Stories.

Thursday: New guest writer Marie conveys the excitement surrounding the re-release of John Williams’ classic, Stoner.

Friday: Hilary does callisthenics to tackle Jonathan Glancey’s magnificent book Lost Buildings: Demolished, Destroyed, Imagined, Reborn.
