      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

  1. What's the weather like?

    It's not supposed to drop below the high teens overnight tonight. Joy.
  2. Share your memories

    I remember that time a ferret got loose and chased Jane Austin around the Classics forum; my, how we laughed!
  3. Chrissy's Reading

    Good to hear you liked them, I think they are pretty good!
  4. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    Return of the Jedi Flawed in places, but still one of the best sequels ever made!
  5. Kindle and ebooks deals

    If you haven't read it, The Day of the Triffids is currently 99p as part of the Kindle Monthly Deal. I highly recommend this book! (even if the cover is a bit crap!).
  6. Kindle and ebooks deals

    I have the paperback and found it got wearing after a while (Moffat, as ever, is trying to be that little bit too clever...). Rose, by Russell T. Davis is much better!
  7. General questions / discussions

    She's regenerating!
  8. Always thought it was a bit odd that they were running two loyalty schemes at the same time. I like the stamp cards, there's something a tad old-school about them that appeals to me. I currently have one that is half-full, so I'm guessing I'll need to trade it in at some point! Good that they are giving half points for spending a fiver, when a lot of books are in the £7-9 range.
  9. General questions / discussions

    Aw, but I just changed my avatar...
  10. US classics

    I read it a few years ago and I can't remember much about it either, so don't go beating yourself up!
  11. US classics

    How about Breakfast at Tiffanys? A good modern classic! I'd also second Moby Dick.
  12. Finished my 17th of the year on Saturday, which is one more than I managed for the whole of last year. Aiming for 30 this year, but will be happy if I make it to 26.
  13. Doctor Who Series 10 + New Doctor?

    I'll say! Lots of stuff coming out of San Diego Comiccon today, including a new trailer, and it all looks new and fresh! Looking forward to this!
