      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

    Sourcery, by Terry Pratchett
  1. Finished it this afternoon (being a novella it is only 180 pages long). I enjoyed it, but I do have a minor criticism that I won't share until you've read it!
  2. No, I don't believe so. I think it falls under the category of "fair use", provided you aren't publishing a picture of every page!
  3. Half way through October Man, the new novella that was published this week, and the first to not be written from Peter Grant's POV (indeed, it is set entirely in Germany - so far!).
  4. Kindle and ebooks deals

    I Am Legend, by Richard Matheson is 99p on the Kindle today. Very good, if you haven't read it!
  5. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    Not looking hopeful at the moment. There was a 4th film in the pipe, featuring the return of Kirk's dad (aka Chris Hemsworth) but that looks to have been shelved. There is also the possibility that there might be a Tarantino written film at some point, but as far as I know there hasn't been any movement on that for a while, either. There is a limited run TV series centered around Picard that will be released on Amazon Prime (in the UK) later this year, however...
  6. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    I think they have generally been good, but I didn't like parts of Into Darkness because it traded (badly) on parts of the far superior Wrath of Khan (also, Kirk and Spock were still getting to know each other in that film, so the way it played out just didn't make sense).
  7. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    I watched that last week as well. And Star Trek last night.
  8. Raven's Reads

    And three years later... Seriously thinking about doing this now. I need to slot The Secret People (1935) in there as well. Not sure I have a copy of it.
  9. Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel

    Next book coming soon?
  10. Black Mirror

    Netflix, I believe.
  11. More football

    Europe's coming up England!* *That sounds very wrong...
  12. More football

    ^ Guessing that will have been two nights running then...
  13. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame Two good films, looking forward to seeing where they take the MCU next.
  14. Kindle and ebooks deals

    Amazon have 5 Evelyn Waugh novels for 99p each today, along with 4 Thomas Harris (Hannibal Lecter) novels. There are also a couple of John Wyndham novels (Triffids and Kraken Wakes) amongst the monthly offerings as well!
  15. What's Up in April? - 2019

    Have a good Easter everyone, and don't eat too much chocolate! (Or do, I'm not your mother!)
