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 next week on Vulpes Libris

Fox toy by WoodlandTale

The cute fox plushie – along with many other lovely baby toys – is from WoodlandTale on Etsy.

As the weather can’t quite decide whether it’s supposed to spring or winter, it’s time to curl up with a good book. But then, in the fox den, when is it not the time to curl up with a good book?

Monday: Jackie looks at three nonfiction books about history in different countries and centuries.

Tuesday: Kate has been reading some of the great Irish short story writers for the first time.

Wednesday: Guest poster Holly is intrigued by Sally O’Reilly’s novel Dark Aemilia about Shakespeare’s Dark Lady.

Friday: Kirsty hopes to do some justice to Dare to be a Daniel, Tony Benn’s memoir of early life.
