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.
Right 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.
