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

Ashridge Park, Hertfordshire, UK | National Trust Woodlands carpIt has been a stunning year for bluebells, and this is possibly the last weekend before they disappear. It is my absolutely favourite time of year, so please indulge me – this is a reminder of one of the most beautiful sights of the UK springtime. Here on Vulpes Libris we give ourselves up to springtime pleasures and surprises, in a typically varied week.

Monday: Kate wallows gratefully in a new reprint of Ronald Firbank’s second novel, Inclinations.

Wednesday: Kirsty D will be writing about something as yet to be confirmed.

Thursday: Kirsty M takes on the colossal task of trying to explain what’s so wonderful about Elizabeth Taylor (the novelist).

Friday: Jackie has mini reviews of three novels featuring modern women.
