      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. Not long ago i came across an on-line book shop called 'awsome' and they sold books for as little as
  2. The Flashman Diaries

    Sirs, As a first post, and as the set of novels that inspired the tag, i felt (having checked the section for a previous thread on the same) that this series of very fine books be brought to the attention of a few more readers. I first noticed the books on display in a book shop purely by chance - and the animated cover of the dashing soldier with a beauty draped across his leg caught my naughty eye. I purchased the first and read it with utter tears of laughter and continued to read ALL books in the series over the course of the next few months. I have since purchased many editions of the books and they take pride of place in my small home library. I even put together a fantastic soundtrack to play on the i-pod that really sits well with the mood of the books and lends itself well to the stories. I am a HUGE fan to say the least. Anyway, i hope some you who have read the Flashman series will share your own thoughts and those who have not yet discovered this gem...enjoy! Regards, Flash.
