      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…

  5. Nicnic's reading list

    I attempted this one last year, and just couldn't stick with it. From the blurb on the back I thought it would be an excellent thriller, but it just seemed to go off on these odd tangents, too much for my liking.

  14. Where Are Your Books Kept?

    We recently bought a chest coffee table, which I filled with books. Then the other day, I looked under the table for something, and the bottom of it has broken and is bulging outwards. So, I've had to move a whole lot of them out and into a plastic storage tub which is sitting in our (tiny) lounge room.
  15. I've found a few errors, but none that I can specifically remember off-hand. I do find them irritating, as I'm sure books are proof-read by more than one person. If I pick them up on the first read, then surely someone who does that for a living must be able to.
