      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. Giveaways - Have Your Say

    You're incredibly generous, Hayley, thank you very much. I didn't realise there were as few as 6 supporters so I really hope a few more people get on board. Patreon starts at $2 a month which is peanuts to pay. I think quarterly prizes are an excellent idea 😊
  2. But should I risk a guess that you say may be hazardous?
  3. Book Titles A to Z

    Keeping On Keeping On by Alan Bennett
  4. Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes
  5. I find photos of the Sahara Desert captivating and quite beautiful. The shadows and shades of colour and the play of light on the dunes are amazing. Unfortunately, I don't like the heat so it's not somewhere I'll ever go. I loved the time in Italy with Hana, Almasy and Kip, particularly. I film I've watched several times. I agree, Binoche and Fiennes are very fine actors. As for The English Patient, although Hanna was guilty, she was no more guilty than the other guards, and I was sad that Michael didn't write or visit her in prison apart from sending her the tapes. What is the Bronte sisters film you've been watching? A fascinating family.
  6. How do you think we could revive the miscelleny of fascinating characters from yesteryear?
