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

26295283731_ab32662565_oRight now, when the world seems to be falling apart, the Foxes want to share with you a week of what sustains us and gives us joy, in the hope that it will do the same for our readers. On Monday, we share what makes us laugh – essential therapy at the moment; and on Friday, we learn of a transworld book share – reading without borders, something that the Foxes just have to get behind. A miraculous and fragile salt-crystal fox presides over this Vulpes Libris week.

Monday: In these blue days of winter, the Foxes talk about what books made them laugh.

Wednesday: New Fox in the Den Diana brings us a very welcome piece on Colette.

Friday: Kate took part in a book-giving chain, and Giovanni’s Room is the first book she received from someone in Germany.

Today’s salt-crystal fox is taken from the Flickr photo stream of Daniel Chang, and is reproduced here under a Creative Commons licence. Clicking on the image will load the source page. Please click through to find out how this wonderful fox was created!
