        I'm thrilled to (finally, sorry for the delay!) announce the January giveaway, with a Sherlock Holmes theme! Supporters can win a beautiful little hardback edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as well as a stylish a5 print by www.thestorygift.co.uk/, featuring some witty advice from the great detective.     As always, if you support on patreon or if you supported before patreon (and did so less than twelve months ago), you'll be entered into the giveaway automatically. If you're not a supporter but want to take part, you can support for this month here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   The winner will be selected at random on January 31st. Good luck!

    I must admit that I haven't read REQUIEM FOR A WREN, yet; I'll have to try to find the time to read that one soon.

    Hi poppy, Well, I'd say that THE PIED PIPER is probably my favourite; and isn't he an excellent author!

  7. Your Book Activity - April 2018

    Actually: I've paused my reading on Arthur Conan Doyle's A STUDY IN SCARLET; mainly so that I can concentrate on Charlotte Bronte's SHIRLEY: I've gone back to the start of SHIRLEY, again, having got about a quarter of the way through it, in the first attempt, which in turn was a while ago; I'm finding it a little bit tedious at this stage, but I'm determined to persist with it this time, as I love the writing style of Charlotte Bronte; Has anyone else had this experience with SHIRLEY?!

    A superb story indeed; I loved it!
