Introducing: The Book Ferret

ferret to search for something; a person who searches assiduously and tenaciously

Welcome to The Book Ferret, a weekly feature on Violin in a Void that will showcase a cool or interesting book-related find every Thursday. Notable new releases, great bookshops, events, cover art, websites, gadgets and accessories – anything to feed a bookworm’s happy addiction.


Lu from Lu’s Bloody Big Book Blog suggested I open up The Book Ferret to other bloggers, so I will provide a linky at the bottom of each post, allowing you to link your own Book Ferret find back here and browse the other discoveries. The concept for the post is very simple, but very flexible:

  1. The Content: anything related to books and reading that you want to share, especially something that other readers can read/use/buy/attend.
  2. The Length: your call. Go slapdash and copy and paste a favourite quote, or spend the week researching and writing an essay on an obscure novel.

The first post will be on Thursday 20 January (tomorrow), so think about what you’d like to post if you want to join in. My little Ferret is just a baby, so any suggestions are welcome, and I hope you will share the idea with fellow bloggers to help it grow. At the same time, have lots of fun with your own!

  1. I love this idea! And the picture of that Ferret is so cute that I have to join in 🙂

    I’ll be doing this tomorrow and posting that friends should check it out
    Thanks Lauren!

  2. Great idea Lauren, thanks for the invite. I stopped blogging awhile ago, just found myself having no time to keep it up, I admire those that can. I will be checking on this meme though from time to time. Good luck with it. 🙂
