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.
A few weeks ago, British Fox Kate suggested a week of calm and peaceful posts to counter the strong feelings surrounding the snap election in the UK. We all thought it a good idea, though realizing there’s only so much book reviewers can do in such a situation. But we will try our best! Here then, is our soothing line-up.
Monday- Jackie searches for calmness the Hundred-Acre Wood in The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff.
Wednesday- Colin goes back in time to the comforts and security of life in a working class family in The Family from One End Street.
Friday- Hilary (chopping and changing) hopes that the sheer mundanity of postcards, Boring and otherwise, will be the rescue remedy she needs on the day after the election.
