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 as June Begins

pansy bed, iris close-up 5-10The beginning of June is considered the start of summer, so it’s appropriate that we have a post on the very summery sport of surfing, as Book Fox Lisa launches her new novel later in the week. We are all very excited about this as you can imagine. We also have a variety of other topics, including history, crime fiction and a biography.

Monday- Jackie shows us the splendid uniqueness of Markus Zusak’s novel The Book Thief.

Wednesday- Guest poster Susan from The History Chicks podcast has been rereading Penny Colman’s biography, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony: A Friendship That Changed the World.

Thursday- Lisa talks about her new teen novel Blue and surfing something other than the interweb.

Friday- Kirsty D is reminded how much she likes the Tom Thorne novels by Mark Billingham.
