      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

    Settling In
  1. Headaches when reading?

    I'm going to go back hopefully on my day off next week, I really need to try and sort it before I start my college work in a few weeks
  2. Headaches when reading?

    Yes they put it down to the glasses but I might see if I can go back again or discuss it with my dr when I next see her as I'm at the dr quite frequently unfortunately!
  3. Headaches when reading?

    Could be the lighting, it's not the glasses as I had my prescription redone recently since I started getting the headaches
  4. I read this book in about 2 days! I loved it! It is a very different take on a book and although it has paranormal aspects it isn't a paranormal book, it captivated me from the first line. I don't think there is anyone I wouldn't recommend this amazing book to! Its a brilliant book by an amazing author/actress/youtuber/singer!
  5. Most popular book the year you were born

    The rescue by Nicholas Sparks
  6. How much should a book cost?

    I'm a student do I really can't afford to pay more than £5 for a book, unless it's for college, then it's like £50 a book!
  7. Do teenagers still read books?

    I skip lunch at College so I can spend the whole hour in the library reading, I've been doing this since I was 11...
  8. In need of some new book recommendations

    The Square root of summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood All the bright places by Jennifer Niven Songs for a Teenage Nomad by Kim Culbertson Watersong series and the Trylle trilogy but Amanda Hocking (they are both brilliant) All That She Can See by Carrie Hope Fletcher
  9. John Green books

    Paper towns is AMAZING! I couldn't get into Katherine's either, I've never read Hank's the Lizzie Bennett diaries but I might have to try it!
  10. John Green books

    John Green has a very different style of writing that I find captivating and I love his books! And the endings are always unexpected, i loved paper towns but I think the fault in our stars is my favourite! It's the only book that's made me cry! I literally threw it at a wall! But that's how I react to good books!
  11. 13 Reasons Why

    I've just read the book, I can't get into the Netflix series, it deals a lot with suicide and has a few mildly explicit scenes, tbh I wouldn't rate it 18, I'd rate it 16 at most, I was reading books like this at 14, I think it would be important for you to talk to her about suicide etc before and after she reads it though
  12. Favourite books from childhood?

    I could not get into the secret 7 but (thanks to my mum!) loved the Famous 5!
  13. Favourite books from childhood?

    I'm new too! I have to to say I loved the heartland (Lauren Brooke) and home farm twins series! As well as Animal Ark by Lucy Daniels!
  14. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

    I've just picked up Elenor and Park by the same author, I've never read any of her books before but always heard great reviews!
  15. Headaches when reading?

    Hi, when I read I get headaches, even if I'm only reading for a few minutes, I find it is solved if I'm wearing sunglasses but that's not always practical inside, and it's only if I'm reading a book or off my laptop, not when I'm on my iPad or iPod. ive had my eyes checked twice and I've got glasses but they don't help, I still wear them though, has anyone got any ideas on how i can stop these headaches as its preventing me from reading, which I love!
