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


How is it December already? I swear it was April five minutes ago. Mind you, I think we’ll all be happy once this ridiculous year is over. In the meantime, we have another varied week coming up for you on Vulpes Libris.

Monday: Kirsty D is inspired by Hidden Figures: The Untold Story of the African American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race.

Wednesday: Guest reviewer Dylan sends us word of the extreme weirdness in John Scalzi’s Agent to the Stars

Friday: Moira says she’ll never look at the OED in quite the same way again after reading Peter Gilliver’s exhaustive account of the creation of the mother, father and granddaddy of all dictionaries.
