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.
“Autumn? Hello? Are you there? …. [silence] … I know you’re there, you’ve been leaving leaves all over the streets and we’ve run out of conkers. What’s with the summer temperatures? It’s the right time for a St Martin’s summer, but we’ve not had the sharp frost yet, the kind that makes us grateful for the blast of heat just before the storms set in. But this, this heatwave, it’s too much.”
And with that, the disgruntled Bookfoxes retire to the cool of the Den, because they’ve been growing winter fur, and the season is not obliging with the proper weather.
