      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. How many books have you read this year?

    I have got up to 120+ it has made it so much easier having a list and writing down all the books as I read them.
  2. Your Book Activity - November 2017

    I have started on my Christmas books held over from last year. The first one I read was The Cat of Yule Cottage by Lili Hayward - don't let the book cover fool you into thinking this is a Christmas story it isn't I could have read this anytime of the year. Oh well it is read now and was a nice book.
  3. What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

    I watched that film last week Virginia, it was so good. Watched the last episode of George Gently. OMG was so good.
  4. I read all three of these books sometimes I found it hard going but I thoroughly enjoyed them all. A TV series wow cannot wait for that
  5. What's for Dinner?

    We had a hearty stew last night with dumplings. Stewing steak, lots of vegetables It was so lovely I don't know why I don't do more of them and it tastes so much better the day after you make it.
  6. Strictly Come Dancing

    As we were saying at home if he was the favourite to win why did people not vote for him. I so loved Ruth and Antons dance, I know lots wont agree with me and she did trip him up at the end, but I think it was in keeping with the dance and the way the crowd reacted at the end of it just shows you they went along with the fun element of it.
  7. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    I have just watched Snow white and the Huntsman again did like this film and will watch the second film The Huntsman winter war this weekend
  8. Your Book Activity - November 2017

    The Corpse in the Cabana - Shea Macleod Destination Thailand - Katy Collins
  9. Strictly Come Dancing

    I bet that upset and annoyed quite a few people on Sunday. Mind you I didn't think the dance was that good. I will let everybody catch up so incase you have not watched it yet will not put who left on here.
  10. What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

    Three weeks worth of Supergirl, Flash, DC Legends and Arrow to catch up with.
  11. What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

    Wow I did miss it. Thanks for this comment I will download it when I get home been waiting for this last episode to be shown.
  12. Strictly Come Dancing

    I so love watching Aston, Alexandra and Debbie dancing, i always say if it is a good piece of music then the dance seems to be a good one and they get voted for. Don't think Molly deserved to be in the dance off but it brings it home to the good ones that no one is safe so watch out.
