      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. Once again thank you all for your recommendations. On Wednesday I'm going to my local library which has a large collection of English books and I hope they will have some of the books you mentioned. If not, I'll try to buy some e-books on Amazon.
  2. Anything that wouldn't be too difficult to grasp by a non-native speaker. I've read Adolf Hitler and found it quite entertaining, on the other hand, I had some problems with P.G. Wodehouse;s books. Perhaps you need to be an English person to enjoy his books and understand his sense of humor. I'll try Carp and Brosh. Thanks for your help.
  3. Hi! I've been feeling a little down recently and I'm looking for some books to lift my spirits. Any recommendations. I would prefer some British authors but it's not that important. Any topic would do - just something optimistic and/or funny, etc. Thank you for your help.
