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.
Boinnnnng, boinnnng, boinnnng …. thumpathumpathumpa. That’s the sound of Easter rabbits leaping about in training for the next two weeks. The Book Foxes are on holiday, and preparing to eat chocolate eggs, look fondly at Easter bunnies, and read a great many books while enjoying the increasing warmth of spring. Join us on 27 April when we return with more stories about the books we’ve read, and the places we’ve been to where we found the books. Mine will be Estonia: I’m off there on Tuesday. Wheeee!
Kate’s Simnel cake was made from a recipe in one of the Great British Bake-Off cookbooks, and tasted very good indeed. It’s got a layer of marzipan inside the fruit cake, and the top layer was browned under the grill before popping the Eleven Apostles of Marzipan on top.
