      February Supporter Giveaway   02/07/2019

      February already! And with February comes the next supporter giveaway. This month, with great thanks once again to www.thestorygift.co.uk , we have a brilliantly bookish set of 'storyteller' pencils (featuring famous first lines) and a retro library card notebook!      As always, you'll be automatically entered into the giveaway if you support the forum on patreon, or if your pre-patreon membership is still active. If you want to be involved in the giveaway but don't currently support, you can join the patreon at any point in February here:  www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .

  1. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    That's more of a comment on Interstellar than Arrival, to be honest. It was a good film, though.
  2. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    Arrival Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than Interstellar.
  3. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    ^ Two good Christmas films! (they go down hill quickly after two, so be warned!)
  4. Raven's Reads

    No, you haven't, but you have gone for 36...
  5. Raven's Reads

    Good job, really!
  6. @Chrissy You can go all fake Yoda on me any time you like!
  7. 2, which is a good start, but given I should have finished them both last year it feels slightly hollow...
  8. Charles Dickens

    Finished my first ever Dickens this week, in the form of A Christmas Carol, which I got as a free download from Amazon on my Kindle a while back. I enjoyed it, but I read it in fits and starts so I don't think I got the most out of it (getting back into the language took a few pages each time). I think I will try this again next year and actually read it in the run up to Christmas rather than starting it on Christmas Eve!
  9. Raven's Reads

    Enjoying the cricket? Thanks for the best wishes, all!
  10. Raven's Reads

    ^ Thanks, both!
  11. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    I watched this as well, and still enjoyed it, despite having the mess that is The Last Jedi running through my head for most of it... You seem to have a similar watch list this Christmas to me! I watched Avengers the night before last and have Antman and the Wasp to watch tonight!
  12. New Year's

    Happy New Year everyone! I stayed in last night, and was able to work out who's clocks were running fast because of their premature fireworks!
  13. Raven's Reads

    So the tally for 2018 came in at 27, so close to 30 which was my target at the beginning of the year (especially as I have two books nearly, but not quite finished...). Oh well, onwards with 2019 I suppose!
  14. Chrissy's Reading

    Was hoping to pick up Water Weed myself, this afternoon, but none in stock in Waterstone's Southampton. Will try Chichester, tomorrow!
  15. What's Up in December? - 2018

    Merry Christmas everyone!
