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…and Year

confetti2Happy New Year! It’s a new beginning and we at VL are full of plans. Not only do we have some fun theme weeks lined up, such as Romance and Leap Year, along with our annual spotlight on Poetry in the spring and short stories in the fall. We are also launching a Contest. To celebrate 2 million views on Vulpes Libris we’ll be running an Open House for Reviewers competition. Anyone can send in a review of a book, and we’ll publish the ones that tickle our fancy in a special Guest Reviewers’ Week before Easter. We’ll be announcing full details by the end of January.
But first, we kick off this week with some personal stories.

Monday- Being Book Foxes, of course, we asked Santa for books. We share what bookish gifts we got, and gave, for the holidays.

Wednesday- Lisa talks about her experience of a book to film adaptation.

Friday- Hilary muses on Hawksmoor, the man and the book.
