      June Supporter Giveaway   06/01/2019

      For the June giveaway I chose the theme 'The Gift of Reading.' One that I think we can all appreciate! The winner will receive four books, including:     The Gifts of Reading by Robert MacFarlane - 'An essay on the joy of reading, for anyone who has ever loved a book.'   plus three little short but (hopefully) thought provoking reading gifts...   The Reckoning by Edith Wharton - 'Two moving stories of love, loss, desire and divorce, from one of the great chroniclers of nineteenth-century New York life.' Create Dangerously by Albert Camus - 'Camus argues passionately that the artist has a responsibility to challenge, provoke and speak up for those who cannot in this powerful speech, accompanied here by two others.' It Was Snowing Butterflies by Charles Darwin - 'A selection of Darwin's extraordinary adventures during the voyage of the Beagle.'    As always, supporting members will be entered automatically into the random draw at the end of the month. If you want to be entered into the draw but don't support yet, you can do so here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum   Good luck

  5. What Are You Watching Now? - 2018

    I don't even know who I can see as winning this year, not a clear winner to me. and Omg so true! Did you see last week's? Those urban gardens they did were awful! Haha. What other shows do you watch?
  6. What are you listening to?

    Everything from A Star is Born - though in particular Shallow and I'll Always Remember Us This Way
  7. What Are You Watching Now? - 2018

    I recently finished Killing Eve - amazing, the two lead actresses were so good in it! I watched it all on iPlayer in a few days (good for me, I struggle binge-watching). As for Netflix I'm watching The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix, which is really good. Netflix has a lot of good stuff but there's a lot of rubbish too to sift through. Wanting to watch the Adventures of Sabrina soon-ish. The only other thing I'm watching religiously and keeping up with is The Apprentice! Haha. I used to be massively into series, but it's fallen away somewhat over the past few years...

  12. Your Book Activity - November 2018

    Currently reading Martina Cole 'Get Even'. I really like her books and how easy they are to dip in and out of. Before this I was reading He Said / She Said which was good too
  13. Hi :)

    Hiiii I read quite a lot and i have looked everywhere for somewhere like this where I can discuss books with others. Open to lots of genres, but mainly crime, mystery or LGBT themed books seem to crop up more than most. Used to write a bit too. Look forward to seeing what's o n here
