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

At this time of year in America, pumpkin spice flavor is taking over. Everything you can possibly imagine has been drenched in pumpkin spice, from the lattes that started the craze, to pancakes, donuts and other baked goods to things that are best left unnamed. If there isn’t pumpkin spice French fries, I’m sure there will be soon. But thankfully, there is not the least little bit of pumpkin spice in this week’s line up

Monday- Jackie contrasts the latest books from two veteran travel writers; Bill Bryson and Paul Thereoux.

Wednesday- Guest reviewer Lucy gives us a beginner’s guide to reading manga.

Friday- Moira considers How English became English and admires the courage of Simon Horobin.

Wall to wall pumpkins found on this educational site, among others.
