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

Red Fox by Martin Pettitt

We’re well into December now, and looking down the barrel of the Christmas break. Still looking for that perfect Christmas present? Perhaps one of this week’s usual eclectic mixture of books will be just the thing for a book lover in your life.

Monday 8th December: Kirsty D is charmed and inspired by John Carey’s The Unexpected Professor: An Oxford Life in Books

Tuesday 9th December: Kate quite enjoys the madcap adventures of an Australian ambassadress in Suriname.

Thursday 11th December: Jackie looks back at yesteryear in Bill Bryson’s newest book One Summer: America 1927.

Friday 12th December: Hilary has been fortunate enough to learn something about how Canon Sidney Chambers made it from page to TV screen.
