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

vl-coming-up-post-picAutumn is waning, and on Thursday the (meteorological, northern hemisphere) winter will hit with its usual icy gut-punch, and many of the Bookfoxes will take shelter and curl up under a blanket, but we’re not going into hibernation quite yet.

This week Kate discusses no less than nine Scottish novels for St Andrew’s Day. Jackie talks about a favourite TV show and Hilary appreciates the amazing manuscripts of the Middle Ages.

As a side note, Leena – the founder of Vulpes Libris – and I will be spending much of our spare time with the Gilmore Girls, since the hugely anticipated revival, “A Year In The Life” has just hit Netflix. Over the seven seasons of the show, Rory Gilmore was apparently seen on screen reading 339 books. Something for this Bookfox to aim for next year… (Who am I kidding? That’s at least thirty years of reading for me).

Monday: Jackie explains the appeal of the ITV/PBS show “Indian Summers”.

Wednesday: To help you celebrate 30th November suitably, Kate offers you a selection of nine St Andrew’s Night Scottish novels.

Friday: Hilary’s immersion in the Middle Ages continues with another review of an exhibition and its catalogue: Colour: the art and science of illuminated manuscripts at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.

    Really like that photo, the twisted branches and contrasting colors are very eye-catching.
