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.
We’re teetering on the edge of summer and autumn here in the northern hemisphere, where going outside means conkers and soggy wet leaves underfoot and mornings cold enough to wear socks in. But in the Den, we’re prepared: so many books piled up to read!
Monday: Kate reads about the fighting dragons of His Majesty’s Navy during the Napoleonic Wars, Naomi Novik’s Temeraire.
Tuesday: Lisa interviews crime novelist Helen Grant.
Wednesday: Simon is thrilled that Sarah Waters has finally written about his favourite decade, the 1920s.
Friday: Kirsty D has mixed feelings about a new take on the story of Goldilocks.
Saturday: as ever, our Eve, Queen of Children’s Books Reviews, tell us about the good stuff she’s read lately.
