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 This Week

It’s the middle of summer in the northern hemisphere and the flowers are lush, baby birds are testing new wings and thunderstorms alternate with hot, sunny days. Winter seems so far away. No matter the weather, the Book Foxes, like avid readers everywhere, are still looking for new and exciting books and we present three very different ones for you this week.

Monday- Jackie enjoys reading about one of her favorite subjects, dinosaurs, this time the flying ones, in Pterosaurs by Mark P. Witton.

Wednesday- Simon gets into a 1990s literary groove reading Joanna Rakoff’s My Salinger Year.

Friday- In a VL Classic, we revisit Book Fox Founder Leena’s review of musician Eloise Ristad’s memoir, A Soprano on Her Head.
