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 next week on Vulpes Libris

fox squirrelThis BookFox was trotting home in the chilly fog this evening. Is November finally here, the day before it goes for good? We’re busy in the Den: the books are being read, the Christmas wishlists are growing, and there is a certain amount of surreptitious cake-eating going on as Foxes normally living far away from each other meet up. And of course we talk about books. Here is this week’s menu.

Monday 1st December: With Advent upon us, Moira takes a look at a poetry book with a difference.

Wednesday 3rd December: Kate is totally bowled over by Margaret Atwood’s trilogy Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood, and MaddAddam.

Thursday 4th December:  Hilary has joined a book group with a difference – a poetry book group. She shares some of her discoveries from some of the off-the-wall topics that they’ve recently chosen.

Friday 5th December: Kirsty is chilled to the bone by Poor Souls’ Light, the new collection from Curious Tales.

    That squirrel is so cute, but he/she looks cold, so i hope they went back into their tree nest soon after the pic was snapped.
