      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. Autobiographies and Biographies

    I am gonna be totally biased in this one... my favorite is my grandmothers book about how life was back in the day when she was young, in Dare County North Carolina - USA. I fell in love with it when I found the typed pages in a yellow envelop stuck in a drawer (since the year I was born). I told her we should publish it and we did a hardcover deluxe edition for family and friends a couple of years ago. We are currently launching a paperback edition and soon an ebook so we can share it with more people (plus its easier and cheaper to distribute on online stores... self-publishing can be expensive!!). It's really a beautiful book, not that I am biased ;)... I'm really proud of her and her book and I do think it's a charming book.
  2. Alain de Botton

    YES!! HUGE FAN!!! He's the best!! Hilarious, and spot on!! really helps in being self-aware
  3. Local History

    I have always loved history! My favorite class in college, and then art history was my favorite class in art school! There's something magically about knowing how things were before us, where we come from and how things came to be. I feel immense respect for our past as humanity. I also love to read stories and books about how things were back in the day. When I worked as a producer, I was involved in a project where old "grandparents" did real life story-telling to children in their communities, to commemorate the 100 years of the Republic of Panama, Central America, where I was born. Telling the story through those who lived it. Now I am lucky to have a book written by my grandmother about how life was back in the day when she was young, in Dare County North Carolina - USA. I fell in love with it when I found the typed pages in a yellow envelop stuck in a drawer (since the year I was born). I told her we should publish it and we did a hardcover deluxe edition for family and friends a couple of years ago. We are currently launching a paperback edition and soon an ebook so we can share it with more people (plus its easier and cheaper to distribute on online stores). It's really a beautiful book, not that I am biased. I'm really proud of her and her book and I do think it's a charming book.
