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.
We’re back! Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Break and are welcoming in the new year. The Foxes have Big Plans for 2017, not least, because it will be our 10th Birthday in the fall, so hopefully, cake and champagne all around. Along with our annual Poetry Week, this spring will also hold Sci-Fi week. Other themes will focus on Translations, Historical Fiction and Jane Austen. This year is full of literary milestones and we hope to join in their celebrations, as well.
To kick things off for the year, we have a nice variety, including our monthly group post, this one with a timely topic.
Monday- Colin is impressed by Arnold Bennett’s first novel A Man from the North and sees in it themes that will appear in his later bestsellers.
Wednesday- Some of the Foxes tell us what their reading resolutions are for the year.
Friday- Moira gets to grips with George Gissing’s fascinating, shape shifting New Grub Street.
