      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

  1. Ready Player One was very good. Not a lot of crime, but plenty of VR. I'm looking for a sci-fi as well. I really enjoyed the Ender's Game series, and similar books. (Seeds of Earth etc)
  2. It's a bit dark in some areas, but Jason Bourne is an excellent thriller.
  3. John Steinbeck

    Steinbeck has an almost pragmatic way of showing how depressing the world is. (if that makes any sense) His simplistic style was one of the reasons I was drawn to The Pearl , a simplistic way of illustrating the total breakdown of a man for greed. It was deliciously brutal and straightforward.
  4. Hello There!

    Science fiction, mystery. As for video games, anything goes.
  5. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

    As someone who has struggled with bouts of depression, I can tell you one big reason to avoid 13 Reasons Why. Hannah's reason for suicide was mostly based on vengeance. People don't commit suicide because they're angry. They commit suicide because they are so utterly lost, helpless, and isolated. It it a decent novel? Sure! But not an accurate one. I mostly say this because of some media hype surrounding the Netflix adaptation. I've already come across embarrassingly inaccurate articles about how Hannah could be compared to teens today, and a bunch of other hogwash.
  6. Hello There!

    I'm not the best at introductions... Hi! You can call me John. Or Qoajo. I don't care. Aside from books, I enjoy video games, science, and computers in general. I'm excited to meet the community here!
