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

3086729649_d2e6fa12d9_oAutumn is definitely on its way at last, after summer fooled us for a day or three in September. Time to curl up on the sofa with the proverbial good book, and as ever the Bookfoxes are here to help!

After our week of country matters, and our week of writers’ haunts, the theme this week is that there is no theme. At least I don’t think there is – answers on a postcard if you find one. We go from cozy to funny via a life story:

Monday: Jackie talks about some of the cozy mystery series she’s been enjoying lately.

Wednesday: Kate reviews a biography of Hilda Matheson, the BBC’s first Director of Talks, and Vita Sackville West’s lover (one of them, anyway).

Friday: Hilary provides a buyers’ guide for new fans of Don Marquis’s beloved and hilarious characters archy and mehitabel (to say nothing of pete the parrot and the old trouper).

Today’s utterly charming fox photo, entitled ‘My fur is season-co-ordinated’, comes from the Flickr photo stream of tiny_packages, and is reproduced here under a Creative Commons CC BY-NC-ND 2.0 licence. Clicking on the image will load the source page.
