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.
It’s officially summer in the northern hemisphere, even if the calendar doesn’t say so until midweek and the Foxes are scattered to the four winds doing all sorts of things, but of course, we always have time to read, where ever we are. Since this isn’t a theme week, we have a lot of variety.Jackie starts the week with a pair of nonfiction books. In the middle, Kate has a timely piece about another female superhero.And Kirsty M ends the week with an appropriately seasonal choice.
Monday- Jackie looks at two nonfiction books about elements of daily life, hair and mail.
Wednesday- Kate returns to Marvel’s Spiderwoman: crime fighter, masked avenger, mother.
Friday- Kirsty M introduces one of those books she always wishes she could read again for the first time: Elizabeth Taylor’s In a Summer Season.

We’re back …!
Monday: Colin sits down to dine in We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson and wonders if it is safe to use the sugar.
Wednesday: Two different books, two different kinds of journeys. Jackie looks at the similarities between books by Gabourey Sidibe and Rosamund Burton.
Friday: Hilary, all behind with her novel-a-month challenge, reviews one whose cover fetched her across a crowded bookshop, Alex Wade’s Flack’s Last Shift.
