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

SRR-yellow flowersIn the US, it’s Labor Day weekend, a holiday intended to honor working people, but is really just an excuse to have barbeques. It’s considered the official end of summer, no matter what the calendar says and woe to anyone committing the fashion faux pas of wearing white clothing afterwards.

Possibly, you are in a part of the world where this weekend is less fraught with meaning and looking for something different to read. If so, the Foxes have a variety of suggestions for you.

Monday- Jackie continues her fascination with the Fitzgeralds with Therese Anne Fowler’s novel Z , which is about Zelda.

Wednesday- Kate reads The 400lb Gorilla, and finds out that it’s all about aggressive fairies.

Friday-  Leena enjoys Esther Freud’s novel Lucky Break, which follows a group of English actors as they leave their academy and their careers take them in very different directions.

Saturday- Eve treats us to another entertaining review of a YA book.
