      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…

  1. Sorry I don't get to the forum as much as I'd like to, to read the threads, but I'm still a member and like to visit now and then. I'll be back LOL.

    P.S: I subscribed to a lot of useful threads in the past but these seem to have disappeared, hopefully I'll discover them somewhere.

  2. I've got Dumfries Half Marathon this Sunday, then a well earned week off. It's been a busy Summer with the running club. I bought some great Running books but have only got round to reading one of them so far.

  3. How's the running goig Ernie....I just ran The Chippenham Half Marathon this weekend with a rather sore achilles...so I am going to have to rest up for the next weeks and look to running a race in the new year...

  4. World Cup 2010

    I'm showing my age but I remember when we only had 4 Channels and they had time for every sport on TV and still managed to show all the soaps etc too. Seems worse now we have too many channels. I'll try not to miss the Athletics tonight on BBC3 Lol.
  5. World Cup 2010

    Isn't it strange when you consider how bad we did in the world cup and what a bad example many of these footballers are that it was shown on all main tv channels, yet our Athletics team performed out of their skins recently and it's only on bbc2 or even bbc3.
  6. Just discovered my Dad was a member of FolioSociety, so I had a look, not cheap but very desirable for any book lover/collector. I reckon if I treated myself to even one a year for the rest of my life it would be a lovely collection to pass on, and I'd like to think I've got another 70-80 good years left
