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

With this being the last week of posts before our Christmas Break, we have an eclectic mix of subjects. The Foxes are busy with holiday preparations and even we can’t read at the same time as hanging ornaments on the Christmas tree and for those of us doing holiday baking, well, does a cookbook count? We hope that our readers will take a brief break from their shopping, cooking and visiting to see what’s on offer. Who knows, it might provide you with gift ideas!

Monday- Jackie marks the Festival of Lights with Emily Franklin’s collection of essays, How to Spell Chanukah…And Other Holiday Dilemmas.

Wednesday- Kate trots along in Stephen Leonard’s snowy wake as he walks with the Inuit in Greenland, in Polar North.

Friday- Kirsty M plunges into the difficulties of daily decision-making with Michael Banner’s The Ethics of Everyday Life.
