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.
….. to a book blog near you: today’s post on Postcards and their calming properties. This week on Vulpes Libris has been about books that keep us calm and reduce our stress levels during a fractious, futile and needlessly prolonged UK election campaign. Or was it futile? There is good stress as well as bad stress, no? And there is being short of sleep because the outcome of the election has been so astonishing, so unforeseen, and, yes, so exciting in a good way, that I just had to try and stay awake (not wholly successfully, it has to be said). So, my apologies – today’s post will appear, but much later in the day when I’m fully awake, have processed what’s happening, and my (good) stress levels begin to subside. Thank you for your patience.
