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


March is here and so is the Spring! Well, it hasn’t quite reached Oxford if the rain lashing against my window this morning is anything to go by. While we’re waiting for the seasons to catch up, this is what we’ve been reading and watching:

Monday: Kirsty D is transported by Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

Wednesday: Jackie tries to explain the strong impression the film The Danish Girl made on her.

Friday:  Diana muses on the new-found relevance of Sinclair Lewis’s Babbitt.

    That’s a scruffy looking fox! I’d like to dry him/her off with a towel, though I bet they wouldn’t appreciate my attempts. lol

    I think he looks like he’s just woken up, probably by the postman at the door. 😁

    He does look half asleep, so I bet you’re right.
