      March Supporter Giveaway   03/02/2019

      So March has crept up on us and I'm thrilled to finally show you the GREAT (he he...) March giveaway!     This time we have a gorgeous print of The Great Gatsby's most famous line from thestorygift.co.uk AND a Great Gatsby tea from the Literary Tea Company! This particular tea is Peach Blossom (which sounds delicious and I kind of wish I could keep it myself...) and the tin features another Gatsby quote.  If you'd like to see the other literary teas available (there are lots, I spent ages looking) you can find them both at the Literary Tea Company's etsy store (https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LiteraryTeaCompany) or at their own website, theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and if you're not a supporter but want to be included in this months giveaway you can become a supporter on patreon here... https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   A winner will be chosen at random on the last day of the month. Good luck!

  1. What's the weather like?

    Well it's not been a bad weekend - dull yesterday but not that cold, though it turned chilly overnight, and today's been nice and sunny, albeit with a cold wind.
  2. Live and let die - Wings
  3. Karen.d's Reading List 2019

    Well you find out what happened in her past.
  4. Paint it Black - Rolling Stones
  5. Karen.d's Reading List 2019

    Hi, I was probably generalizing when I said that statement in the spoiler, but what I was basically saying was that I felt like Eleanor was put into situations that made her an element of being made fun of which I didn't feel comfortable with Those were my thoughts exactly, I found those bits unconvincing and yes also rather insulting. I did suspect the twist though but got the wrong person
  6. What's the weather like?

    Quite bright today, still a few showers though, and very cold last night.
  7. Word Association

  8. What's the weather like?

    Well after a very windy day yesterday which finished with torrential rain, we're now having a day of every type of weather - one minute sunny, then black as ink and either heavy rain, sleet or hail, then back to sunny again. Quite dark at the moment.
  9. blue Monday - New Order
  10. Your Book Activity - March 2019

    It takes a while to get going but I love Jamaica inn - not her best-written novel but a good old yarn anyway!
  11. Muggle Not's Reading List - 2019

    It's a good series, some of the books have different titles though in the UK and US, and they've changed some of the UK editions now to have the US titles, so it gets a bit confusing!
  12. What's the weather like?

    It's been quite nice here too although it was wet first thing, but sunny now though quite windy, but not as cold, but a work colleague who's working from home today says they've had torrential rain and wind. I remember when I was a child the house across the road got struck by lightning, and there was a huge hole in the roof, thankfully no one was hurt and it didn't catch fire, but there was a lot of damage and they had to move out whilst it was fixed. It's very scary, funny that the thunder sounds terrifying but it's the lightning which is really dangerous
  13. I don't like Mondays - Boomtown Rats
  14. Muggle Not's Reading List - 2019

    It's actually a novella, part of the wider Inspector Gamache series, but on Amazon it says it's only 98 pages!
  15. Crying in the Rain - Aha (and various others)
  16. What's the weather like?

    Yes I noticed that about the song titles too! We've got more rain now, it's horrible, yesterday wasn't too bad in the end, cold but stayed mostly dry but making up for it now!
  17. What's the weather like?

    Well after some truly atrocious weather yesterday - I was still soaked when I got home, although it wasn't raining then, but I hadn't dried out from the lunchtime deluge - it's a bit drier today so far, bit windy but quite bright at the moment.
  18. Why does it always rain on me - Travis
  19. What's the weather like?

    Hideous - wind and rain, meant to last for a couple of days at least.
  20. Here comes the Rain again - Eurythmics
  21. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    About halfway through Logan, the last Wolverine movie - boy it's violent! Reminds me of Mad Max quite a bit.

    It also defeats the object of libraries if they start charging, even if it's only a small charge.
  23. What's the weather like?

    Was very windy over the weekend, especially yesterday, and cold too.
  24. What's the weather like?

    It's colder today and very windy, had to really battle against it at lunchtime! Hasn't rained though, thankfully. Spoke too soon - now it's raining!
  25. Summer Night City - Abba
