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

Waking upMaybe, just maybe, now June has arrived, here in the UK we can switch the heating off and ditch the woolly jumpers. (Looking out of the window, I am now thinking Maybe not.) Anyhow, this young fox has found some sunshine to bask in, and is looking quizzically at the typically eclectic mix of books that have caught the Bookfoxes’ interest this week.

Monday: Hilary reveals what made her laugh like a maniac in the middle of Foyles.

Wednesday: Kate tries South Korean magical realism with Hwang Sok-yong’s novel Princess Bari.

Friday: Jackie looks at a couple of recent reads in nonfiction and pronounces them excellent.

Today’s image of a young fox who needs to put his ears on straight comes from the Flickr photostream of Steven Kersting, and is reproduced here under a Creative Commons licence. Clicking on the image will load the source page.

    Here in Ohio, I still need a woolly jumper this cold and rainy weekend. That’s an unusual photo of a fox, he does have an amusing expression on.
