      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

  1. I am here to introduce a poet from America, John Yamrus... He published four books, the 4th book is Memory Lane, and it is also a new beginning of the longterm poet. Since seventies he was active and published 1800 poems around the world in magazines and later he collected some poems for his three books.. These books are: Real as Rain, I admit nothing and Alchemy; Each and every book was written with great focus on details and inspiration. Somebody would think they will hear the poems talk to him with few words. While reading the poems, which are not in great size and which are concise as well, they are giving you an image, or feeling of the situation described. The situation are like they will need more words to express but indeed 4 or 5 words are sufficient to make us create the big picture. From every perspective the poems are in a different moods, also melancholy is vivid in some of the poems. They are easy read and everybody with an average English skill will understand those poems. In another occasions it could be read as a improvement for English learning, but also lovers of poems wouldnt be disappointed. Without too much obsolete words and phrases poems talk to you with a great manner. It can be seen as expressed thoughts.. and can be seen as poetical thinking... in one, short it is one in one or two ways of the same thought. What you see as ordinary it is later seen that it has a sense of its beauty. Like when you imagine Gustave Flaubert, when he said anything becomes interesting when you look long enough.. In small sentences, the books are worthwhile to read, and the poems are enough to make you perceptions change for a while by the power of poetry. Here an example: dumber than a writer, is someone who admits to being a writer, i am 5 foot 7, 65 years old, and i love dogs i am not dumb, and i admit nothing
