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: a competition ……

competitionThis is a very, very special week for Vulpes Libris. At the time of writing (Friday 5th February) this site has had 1,999, 369 views. By Sunday night there’s a pretty good chance that the two millionth view will have been enjoyed, opening up the BookFoxes’s humble posts into three thousand millennia. This is absolutely something to celebrate, so we’re going to be running a competition to release new writers, reviewers and bloggers onto the world. Keep your eyes glued to your screens ….. if not for the competition, for our other fine offerings of reading pleasure. (Update: 1,999, 396 views.)

Monday 8th February: the competition  announcement

Wednesday 10th February: Kirsty D mostly enjoys The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth McKenzie
