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

book on beach picnic table It’s been so hot in North America, where this Fox lives, that melting sometimes seems a real possibility. So far though, my Nook has not gotten droopy and if it does, there are plenty of traditional books on standby, which is reassuring. On this last week before our Summer Break, we have two visiting reviewers and a joint post where two Foxes read the same book, which is always fun.

Monday- Guest reviewer Colin Fisher looks at Arnold Bennett’s Lord Raingo, and wonders about greatness.

Wednesday- Diana finds family resonances in Jack London’s John Barleycorn.

Friday- After a brief, ladylike tug-of-war, Moira and Hilary decided to share their responses in a two-handed review of Rosy Thornton’s eagerly-awaited new collection of short stories, Sandlands.

    Sounds like some interesting things coming up! I am currently reading Sandlands too and liking it. Hopefully I’ll be finished in time for Friday.
