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 on Vulpes Libris

Sleeping foxIs that spring in the air? Is it? Well, no, probably not. That’s not stopping book fox Simon burrowing himself away in Shropshire for a long weekend, just when he was supposed to be doing this Coming Up post. Does writing in the third person make me feel less foolish about this? Again, probably not. But at least we have a trio of interesting posts to entertain you this week…

Monday 14 March: Kate reads the story of Ida and Louise Cook who went to Vienna in the 1930s for the opera, and saved Jewish families from Nazi persecution.

Wednesday 16 March: Simon tries to work out where to draw the line with quirkiness, with a little help from Andrew Kaufman’s All My Friends Are Superheroes.

Friday 18 March: Jackie attempts to express her feelings about Allegra Goodman’s The Cookbook Collector.
