      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

  1. Hi, I'm in the second week of the Scribd "trial" membership. Prior to joining, I made a hand-written copy of my audible wish list and ascertained that about 26 varied audiobook titles from it, were readily available (as audiobooks) on Scribd. A few days later, I subscribed to scribd, with the intent of re-locating those "found" titles and putting them into the scribd provided "list." They are all gone, no longer listed in Scribd. The Scribd FAQ makes a brief and vague warning that authors may remove their listings from time to time. However my entire list* with varied subjects and all different authors, vanished at about the same time. Subsequent searches for for similiar audiobooks (in my effort to justify joining Scribd), resulted in mostly audiobooks authored by L. Ron Hubbard. And so, if anyone knows what happened and why it happened, at Scribd, I'll much appreciate. Thanks much.
  2. Hello!

    Thank you for allowing me to join the BookClubForum. I'm into audiobooks, and currently subscribe to audible and Scribd. I hope to be useful to other forum members in the future. Cheers, Mongoose
