      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

  1. Jodi Picoult

    Oh I love her books, I've read Salem Falls, Nineteen Minutes & My Sister's Keeper. They're really, really awesome. Sad, though.
  2. Linwood Barclay

    I really really love his books; Too Close to Home & No Time for Goodbye. They do take a while to get into, in my opinion, but straight after that you're seriously hooked. Can't wait for his next book, especially as my forum is doing an interview with him! Anybody else read these?
  3. What are Everyone's Favourite Films?

    It's quite hard, um... Keeping Mum is very funny!
  4. Michael's List

    Yeah, I've read Flambards, but Blind Beauty is the best! I recommend that one, alot. And yeah, you don't have to be mad on Horse Racing to like Dick Francis, as Proof is based more on wine-selling than Horse Racing.
  5. Twilight - The Poll!

    Haven't read it, and to be honest, don't intend to!
  6. Michael's List

    Oh, that is so hard! Salem Falls was good, Midsummer Nights Death & Prove Yourself a Hero, too, but probably - For Kicks, Dick Francis < He is an amazing author, and this book was written in the 60's (I think) ! It definelty proves something, old books can be just as good as the new ones.

  10. Hiya.

    It took me a while to find this! I'm usually quite quick anyway, Hi, Im Michael aka Massiniman. I'm addcited to reading, my friends have had enough of seing me reading, i talk about the book to them and they usually walk away! (sometimes i don't blame them). A 300page book every 4days is my usaul, depending on how much i like it. I'm currently thirteen, (yeah quite young) but prefer adult company tobehonest because most teens are idiots! Read books like CHERUB and Shapeshifter, Watership Down (which i just finished is surprisingly good. Anyway, can't think of anything else so, HI! Oh, i know - i love horse racing!
