      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

  1. I have The Perks of Being A Wallflower on my pending list - and strangely I also thought it was older than it actually is. Glad that you enjoyed Rivers Of London, I love the series, and Gaiman's Neverwhere is a favourite of mine.
  2. Book Titles A to Z

    How The Marquis Got His Coat Back ~ Neil Gaiman
  3. Your Book Activity - July 2019

    Poppy, what a wonderful read you must be having, and a lovely idea to retrace the journey. My heart warms just at the thought of hearing about it from you!
  4. Poppy's Progress 2019

    I like the look of this Poppy. I really enjoyed Sandi Toksvig's 'Hitler's Canary' when I read it, which is also aimed at a younger audience. Just looked it up, and hadn't realised that it is the 2nd in a trilogy. Such a shame that I will have to buy three new (to me) books.
  5. Let's Face The Music And Dance ~ Fred Astaire
  6. Book Titles A to Z

    Far From The Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy I know, but I couldn't think of anything witty enough to throw at you when I read it, so I had to go with a genuine answer. Dammit Raven, you broke my sarcasm!
  7. Apocalyptic genre

    I really enjoyed Russell Hoban's Riddley Walker when I read it many years ago. It's not so much about how they have survived, but rather what has developed as a result of an apocalypse. It is all about the characters for me, and their interactions with each other, and their development / unfolding within the story.
  8. Your Book Activity - July 2019

    Hello Luis. Welcome to the forum. I recently finished a wonderful re reading of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. I have since moved on to the latest Dan Brown Origin. I enjoy the Dan Brown books as you get a nice few nuggets of interesting thrown in amongst improbable action and characters. Not challenging reading, but certainly escapism.
  9. My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell
  10. Book Titles A to Z

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney I will be doing a re read later on in the year. Very much looking forward to it. Adore the series.
  11. Oh my goodness! I did not see that coming so I actually barked a laugh.
  12. Your favorite teams?

    Your ladies did well! And just for the record - I LOVED their tea drinking mimicking. I laughed hard when I saw that, and thought it was very witty.
