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 post for Week of the 31st March 2014

Talking about alphabets – how about this gorgeous fox-related piece reproduced under a Creative Commons License from Monceau on Flickr? Good, eh? Here’s the link to the Flickr page –

Casting about for a suitable summing up of this week’s offerings, the words “eclectic” and “wide-ranging” come to mind. But when is it ever not eclectic on Vulpes Libris?

This week we have everything from a relationship described through the alphabet, to campaigning nuns. So it doesn’t get much more wide-ranging than that. And we really do owe our guest-poster, Holly, a big thanks for stepping into the breach on a rather sparsely populated week and offering up another review when we most needed it.

So – without more ado – here’s the schedule:

Guest poster Holly revisits one of her favourite series: Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments.

Kate is fascinated by a biography of a 15th-century campaigning nun.

It’s alphabet of lurve time when Rosy takes a look at the new offering from the ever-intriguing Roast Books: a book by writer, Nik Perring, with illustrations by Miranda Sofroniou, called Beautiful Words

Moira is unexpectedly enchanted by a true story of love, life and loss in a Lakeland Valley.
