      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. .Introduction, and recommendations?

    Thanks all for the warm welcome. I only know Le Guin from The Left Hand of Darkness, but both the compilations of her novellas and short stories have gotten rave reviews. Also very much looking forward to Existentialist Cafe. Even if I hadn't known what it was about, "Freedom, Being, and Apricot Cocktails" probably would have sucked me in Again, thanks, look forward to chatting! -R
  2. Hi, I've been looking for a friendly book forum, and this seems like it. My name is Robert. Briefly, fiction reader on and off over the years, but for the last five or so years, pretty voracious. I'm from the US, but lived for six years in the UK. Still in touch with my UK buddies, all of whom are readers, but constrained by time. Me too.... my work schedule didn't leave me much time this last year, but things will calm down as of January 1, so the pics are books I bought for myself as Xmas presents. Any recommendations? I'm especially interested in keeping up with any UK novelists that I've lost track of over the past 15 years. Thanks, -R
