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

April showers mean May flowers, apparently. May hasn’t quite got that memo, at least not where I am; we still have the showers. If you’re stuck inside waiting for the rain to go off this week, or even if you aren’t, you can stay entertained with one of VL’s characteristically eclectic selections.

On Monday, Kate loves Justin Petrone’s blogs-in-a-book abut Estonia.

On Tuesday, Rosy has a few reflections on children’s books and reading trash.

On Wednesday, guest Fox Holly reads Silent Noon by Trilby Kent.

And on Friday, it’s Serendipity in Store Street: two mini-reviews from Hilary of secondhand bookshop finds.

    Oh, I can relate to the lack of flowers! And rain. Nifty scientific drawing of the plant, I’ve always liked those old fashioned diagrams.
