      June Supporter Giveaway   06/01/2019

      For the June giveaway I chose the theme 'The Gift of Reading.' One that I think we can all appreciate! The winner will receive four books, including:     The Gifts of Reading by Robert MacFarlane - 'An essay on the joy of reading, for anyone who has ever loved a book.'   plus three little short but (hopefully) thought provoking reading gifts...   The Reckoning by Edith Wharton - 'Two moving stories of love, loss, desire and divorce, from one of the great chroniclers of nineteenth-century New York life.' Create Dangerously by Albert Camus - 'Camus argues passionately that the artist has a responsibility to challenge, provoke and speak up for those who cannot in this powerful speech, accompanied here by two others.' It Was Snowing Butterflies by Charles Darwin - 'A selection of Darwin's extraordinary adventures during the voyage of the Beagle.'    As always, supporting members will be entered automatically into the random draw at the end of the month. If you want to be entered into the draw but don't support yet, you can do so here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum   Good luck

  1. A Game of Thrones

    Hello everyone and sorry to just jump in. Not trying to derail the discussion, I just wanted to share my thoughts on the series. I picked up the first book after watching the series premier on HBO in 2011 (I think). No book series has captivated me so much as ASoIaF. I've now read the series twice and am eagerly awaiting the sixth installment. What I like best about tho series is that a lot of it reads more like historical fiction rather than fantasy. The feuds between the houses and the political intrigue give it a sense of realism along side the dragons and zombies and other fantastical elements. I've also read all of Martin's early Sci-Fi stories which I also found to be generally top notch. Anyway, this was my first post. I just had to register because there are some really good discussions here.
