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

In the Northern hemisphere, we are well into autumn which is the perfect time to curl up with a good book and cup of tea. Our offerings are as varied as the many colors of leaves this week and we hope there’s something to pique your interest.

Monday- KirstyD looks at The Photograph by prize winning novelist Penelope Lively.

Thursday- Kate and Leena both read The Rabbit Back Literature Society by Pasi Ilmari Jāäskeläinen. Spell that name in a hurry if you’re not Finnish.

Friday- Moira finally gets around to reading one of the (many) volumes on the family bookshelf that she’s always known all about but never read: Gilbert White’s The Natural History of Selborne.

Mixed media painting of North American red squirrel entitled “Chickaree Confetti” is by Book Fox Jackie .

    Beautiful painting, Jackie. Mesmerising. I’ve always liked your mixed media works best of all.

    Thanks Leena, glad you like it. I think the mixed medias allow me to get more variety in textures, so maybe that shines through?
