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.
I know I am a little obsessed with moons, but Autumn is the time for moon-lovers, with great big bright full moons that mean it’s not a disaster if I leave my torch at home on choir practice nights (for the rest of the winter, it is…). Sorry TMI, I know. And it’s an excuse to post another stunning image of autumn moonlight.
So, a new week, split between surprises and comfort reading, Wodehouse, Moomins and another hotly anticipated author interview. Here is what’s in store.
Monday Lisa interviews award-winning author Keren David.
Wednesday Kate reads Tove Jansson’s autobiography, Sculptor’s Daughter, looking for Moomins.
Friday Simon revels in the reliable joy of a P.G. Wodehouse novel.
Saturday Eve promises to witter on, and we all know what that means…. (hurrah!)
