  • What? Did someone call my name? vulpes libris is clearly just a latin bastardization of my full name sionnach na leabhar, or if you prefer madra rua na leabhar.

  • Vulpes Libris: 'Bookfox (vulpes libris), a small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Bookfoxes live in a wide variety of habitats, and usually find something to read in the unlikeliest places. They tend to hunt alone but often gather in packs to discuss their prey.'
