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 this week on Vulpes Libris

Norway Wildlife Animal Winter Arctic Snow FoxWinter just keeps wintering, doesn’t it? (Unless you’re in the southern hemisphere, in which case I can only assume that summer keeps summering.) At Fox HQ – spread rather thinly across the UK and dots across the globe – we’ve had snow, we’ve had rain, and we’ve had a chance to do some reading. What’s coming up this week? Glad you asked.

On Monday, Colin writes about two books set in Scotland and wonders if either throws any light on that country.

On Wednesday, Simon enjoys the gentle pleasures of R.C. Sherriff.

And on Friday we’ll have a Vulpes Libris Mystery Classic. It’s a mystery because I haven’t decided what it’ll be yet – but if there are any archive posts you’d love to see dusted off and reposted, pop a note in the comments!

    This sounds like my kind of week. I love RC Sherriff. I love mysteries. And I live in Scotland. Can’t wait!
