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’s a bank holiday weekend in the UK, and that means the lazy, hazy days of summer are nearly over, and Life starts in earnest again very soon. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be grabbing at summer’s coat-tails, trying to hang onto the time you meant to spend on yourself. I’m hiding from all the reading I meant to do, all the catching up with life that didn’t quite happen. So I’ll be making the most of this long weekend to do some serious lazing.

This week, the Foxes who did manage to relax and please themselves tell us about their summer reading – and watching – and mid-week Jackie tells us about a book with a most intriguing title.

Monday: In our latest Group Post, some of the Foxes tell us what they read over Summer Break.

Wednesday:: Jackie follows the search for the most expensive fish in the world in The Dragon Behind the Glass by Emily Voigt.

Friday: Kirsty M finds something dark and brilliant lurking in an all-American teen comic franchise.

Today’s image, which could be captioned ‘What the Bookfoxes did on their summer holidays’, comes from the 14th century manuscript of Gaston Phoebus Livre de la Chasse (BnF, Français 619, fol. 22v).
