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 on Vulpes Libris …

The days are shortening, the swallows are gathering noisily on the telephone wires and there’s a bit of a chill in the evening air. We can’t ignore it any longer: Autumn is nearly upon us …

Which is, of course, great news for the Book Foxes because it means we no longer feel we should be doing something horribly healthy in the fresh air and can shove our noses in our books with completely untroubled consciences … Bliss.

This week, as is so often the case, we have a totally mixed bag for you with no discernible theme whatsoever:

On Monday Jackie surveys a trio of nonfiction animal books.

We’re joined on Wednesday by guest Fox Janet Allison Brown of  Firedance Books who describes how online friends wrote themselves into print by trading skills.

Thursday finds Leena with very mixed feelings about Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

And finally on Friday, Moira reviews a biography of Alan Turing which suggests that everything she ever thought she knew about him was probably wrong.
