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.



Jenn Ashworth is particularly fond of writing about herself in third person, as it makes the lies seem a little bit less like lying and a little bit more like a story. During the day she is a Prison Librarian with a passion for user-centered service and reader development. In the evening she dons her lucky brown cardigan and becomes a misanthropic book-snob. You can find out more here:, read her blog here: or pretend to be her friend here:
