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

As frosty February begins, the foxes are pleased to see signs of life amid the snow, most notably birds in our gardens. They are a pleasing sight in short days filled with busyness and swirling snowflakes. But no matter what else is going on, we are always reading, we are Book Foxes after all. This week brings an eclectic collection of recent reads from the Foxes.

Monday- Kirsty D is surprised by how much she enjoys the post-apocalyptic Station Eleven.

Wednesday- Kate is mesmerised by Peter Kennedy’s unsettling stories of a north-east fishing town’s fight against plague and drink, Fishermen’s Tales

Friday – Hilary returns for comfort reading to Oxford, and Edmund Crispin’s wildly eccentric ‘tec Gervase Fen, in Swan Song.
