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

NYS foxIt may look like spring out there, but it’s not very warm. The birds don’t care, the flowers don’t seem to, the cherry trees are busting out all over, but I’m in three layers, thinking about gloves. Hunker down, read a book, until it gets warmer.

Monday 25th: Kate dips in and out of Padraig Rooney’s The Gilded Chalet, a Swiss ski-run of literary celebrities.

Wednesday 27th: Jackie reports laughter and tears in a year at the dog park in Off the Leash by Matthew Gilbert.

Friday 29th: Cath feels conflicted about Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn’s debut novel Sharp Objects. Flynn says she wants to write about bad women, but why does that mean they have to be bad to themselves?
