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

9278075052_17d64ee986_oHere in the UK, Summer is being a big ol’ tease, peeping in then rushing out again. How we all wish right now we could emulate this little fox, and doze under a hedge while catching some rays. But here I am, listening to the rain on the roof and drawing my woolly jumper around me more closely, to tell you about another varied week on Vulpes Libris. Three novels (one graphic) and a Saint just about sums it up.

Monday: Kirsty D has been rattling through Sarah Hilary’s Someone Else’s Skin, which has just won the Theakston’s Crime Prize.

Wednesday: Kate reads David Mitchell’s latest whomping sf thriller, The Bone Clocks, and loves it with a very critical eye.

Thursday: Hilary looked askance at Steampunk, until Sydney Padua’s The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage made her laugh out loud – and learn a lot.

Friday: In honour of the day, Kirsty M will be providing us with something Ignatian.
