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.
As a cold wind is raging and howling outside – or at least here in Finland, it is – we at Vulpes hope that you’ll be warmed and comforted by a pile of books, enjoyed with a nice hot cup of your beverage of choice.
As usual, our array of reviews runs the gamut from anything to everything . . . but all of it intriguing in its own special way.
Monday: Kirsty has a particularly intriguing clerical memoir to consider: the Revd Richard Coles’ Fathomless Riches.
Wednesday: An inspiring day trip to Paris has reminded Hilary to dig out Helen Constantine’s anthology of Paris Tales from her TBR mountain.
Thursday: Kate gets lost in the endless toils and coils of E R Eddison’s The Worm Ourobouros.
Friday: Moira is thoroughly beguiled by David and Hilary Crystal’s gazeteer of the English language: Wordsmiths and Warriors.
