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

Well, isn’t this a red letter day? Kirsty D – AKA The Other Kirsty – here with my very first ‘coming up’ post. Let’s hope I don’t break anything, eh?

The sun is finally shining in glorious Oxford and not a moment too soon. I fully intend to find a bit of time to try and bask with a book at some point very soon. It’s good for the soul. If you’re looking forward to some basking of your own, then we’ve got some suggestions for your reading material in another wonderfully varied week on VL.

Monday: Jackie looks at the books she’s liked best so far in 2014

Tuesday: Kate reads Winifred Holtby’s letters, first published in 1937, in which she adopts a tortoise.

Thursday: Kirsty D on Linda Grant, culling libraries, and “murdering books”

Friday: Simon is dazed and confused by Adolfo Bioy Casares’s Asleep in the Sun

Saturday: Eve enthuses greatly about her latest favourite kid’s book
