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

To be honest, I’m still in shock that January has rolled around so quickly. It feels like only the other day I was pondering putting up the Christmas decorations, and now suddenly they’re down again, away in their box till next time.

Still, we’re banishing the January blues with a fine selection of books. Here’s what’s coming up this week:

Monday: Jackie muses on some of the books she read over VL’s Christmas break

Wednesday: Kate has been reading the 1968 edition of George Orwell’s Collected Letters, Journalism and Essays

Friday: I – that is, Kirsty D – will be raving about The Bees, Laline Paull’s ambitious and brilliant drama set in a beehive.

    I really like the expression on this little fox’s face.
