      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. Hi all I'm a 23 year old avid book reader from Sweden. I wasn't always interested in books, in fact I would find it very hard to concentrate while reading unless it was something I was genuinly interested in. All of that changed about two years ago when I read The Wolf of Wall Street by Jordan Belfort. I read it it English even though I'm Swedish but it actually made the experience more enjoyable. The book is not a masterpiece by any means but I read the entire book in a day. About 500 pages if I remember correctly. Then I started thinking to myself that I've truly missed a completely new world. I could've read hundreds of classic books instead of all the time spent in front of the computer. Since then I've read about sixty books. When I started this passion of mine I came across one particular book. It changed my whole perspective of life and I'm sure 99% of you will know this book. I made a short film about this book called "the most important book ever written" and I know it seems a little silly I would make a shortfilm called that since I haven't even scratched the surface of all the classics out there. But this one book made me realize. It made me think. It completely affected me because the things this book says can be found in every aspect of my life. Past and present. This book affected me so much that I just had to share this experience with the world. So I found this forum and decided that it would be perfect to use my other hobby, filmmaking, and instead make a shortfilm about the book and share it here on this forum. So after about 40 hours of writing, filming and editing I finally uploaded it on YouTube. I thought sharing my shortfilm with this forum would make a GREAT first post, so here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1wYPG3DVQE Hopefully this won't be that last short film I make about books. If I ever find another book which affects me deeply, I will surely make a shortfilm about it and share it with you guys. If you like the video, maybe give a thumbs up and perhaps subscribe as well? Making movies and literature are my two passions in life
