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

It may be Spring, and jolly nearly Summer, but a wind from the Arctic Circle is carving its way through Britain at the moment, so Monday’s piece is just what’s needed for those of us who want to escape. Kate warns us that on Wednesday her piece “will contain maths. Not sure yet if it’ll be maths-hate or maths-love. But maths.” And on Friday, we are sharing the fruits of Comrade Kirsty’s exam revision. So, something for everyone, particularly if you’re cold and yearn for far-off places, not afraid of maths, and/or curious about Josephus – just another normally abnormal week here on Vulpes Libris!

Monday: Inspired by Jackie, the Foxes consider an imaginary journey in a special group post.

Wednesday: Kate reads Hidden Figures, the book of the film.

Friday: Kirsty M gets in about the life and reputation of Josephus.
