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.
As we change the calendars, we note that Spring is scheduled to arrive officially later this month. Some of the Foxes view this with skepticism seeing noting but piles of snow outside of their windows or shaking cold rain from their coats. But some Foxes are seeing catkins on willow trees and flowers peeking through the mud of their gardens, so it depends on where one is lucky enough to live. In any case, it’s not quite beach weather, so there is plenty of time to curl up with a good book and we have a variety of suggestions.
