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

hibiscusToday I’ve chosen a picture of a hibiscus flower. They’re my current favourite, and a couple of weeks ago I planted several hibiscus plants in my front garden. I’m not a natural gardener, so I’m probably hovering over them more than I should, but so far I’ve managed not to kill them off. Fingers crossed.

Anyway, another week, another selection of very different posts coming up on Vulpes Libris. This is what we’ve got:

Monday: Jackie learns that postcards are more than just happy vacation views in H. Roger Grant’s book on historic postcards.

Wednesday: Kirsty D flinches her way through a gory Val McDermid novel.

Thursday: Lisa talks to fellow YA author Leila Rasheed.

Friday: Hilary adds Adam Nicholson’s Sea Room to her list of favourite writing about wilderness places.

    That’s a really pretty flower! Hope that the ones you planted do well and that you have lots of lovely blossoms in the years to come.
