      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. Thank you very much. I found myself owning some of the books on the list and I also read some. I love George Orwell's books as well. The list will be very helpful and it should keep me busy for some time.
  2. To be honest I find classics interesting. The different style and the difficult vocabulary and writing definitely help me improve my English. But I don't want to focus only on them, I would appreciate it if you could maybe just recommend some modern books that you have read and think are not to be missed. I haven't read Game of Thrones yet, It is hard to find books here in Morocco and the Game of Thrones books are quite expensive, that's the main reason why I haven't gotten to reading them yet. Thank you
  3. Thanks for the advice. Any recommendations? I'm trying to read in English as much as possible since I am majoring in English studies.
  4. Thank you Athena. Well I like thriller and action movies (The Jasoun Bourne series-Saving Private Ryan-Gladiator...) something with twisted plots or just action packed. I also like to watch some mystery and detective movies (Love the Lord of the Rings-Sherlock Holmes...). Something with a GOOD story that would keep me hooked will basically do it. Concerning TV shows I love Game of Thrones, so any books of the same type I would really like to read. I also enjoyed Dubai by Robin Moore so anything similar would be great. I hope this helps. What I actually meant by beginner is that I haven't been reading books for years, although I have been speaking the language for a long while now and am quite fluent in it. So when I'm reading those classics now I'm not struggling much with them, and if I am, then it is also beneficial for me as it allows me to learn new vocabulary. Thank you
  5. Hi everyone, I'm really a beginner when it comes to reading books. I'm from Morocco and only recently picked up reading. English is of course not my mother tongue but I'm majoring in English Studies and thought it would greatly help to read books other than those assigned to us in class. So please, what kind of books do you think I should read first? And any advice on HOW to read would also be of great help if any of you has any working methods to improve their reading. I have just finished reading Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky and am currently reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and War and Peace by Leo Toltsoy. Thank you
  6. Hi from Morocco

    Hi everyone, Souhail here from Morocco. Just found out about this website and I think it's a great place to meet fellow book readers and discuss with them. Looking forward to learn and have a nice time
