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 on Vulpes Libris

Dancing on the edgeSpring is here! At least, that’s what the calendar is telling us. The elements have been putting on a show too, with Northern Lights, an eclipse, a Super-Moon and a Super-Tide. All tremendously exhilarating, so a suitably exciting and varied week is in store here.

Topped and tailed by globe-trotting, with a delicious slice of fantasy in the middle, this week on Vulpes Libris is a typically eclectic mix to celebrate the new season.

Monday: Jackie travels the globe with some recent nonfiction.

Tuesday: Kirsty D explores The Ocean At The End Of The Lane.

Friday: Hilary returns from a visit to a Victorian dwelling designed as a medieval fantasy, with news of Cotton transmuted into Gold.
