      BCF on Patreon!   11/10/2018

      I'm very excited to finally share with you that BCF now has patreon! I'm sure some of you are familiar with patreon already, but for those who aren't here's what it means for the forum:   You will now be able to support the forum monthly. The amount you'd like to give is entirely up to you but, the more you give, the more rewards you get. The rewards (this is the most exciting part!) include entry to a monthly competition when you donate $2 or more. I really cannot wait to show you the first competition prize!   I really do need your support to keep this forum running and I hope that with patreon I can give something back to those who do support too. I am also aware that there's a possibility this might not work. For that reason, I'll be running it on a 6 month trial and I would really appreciate your feedback in that time.   Members who are current supporters will get automatic entry into the competitions until their current years membership runs out (although obviously you can still join the patreon before your current membership runs out if you want to!)   If you have any questions just send me a message, or come to the 'Changes' section of the forum.   If you'd like to get started on patreon, you can find the Book Club Forum here... https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum

    I wish we'd got the series here in NZ. I'd love to see it.
  2. Elizabeth George

    Has anyone read her latest The Punishment She Deserves. I read it a few months ago and loved it.
  3. Finished Silent Voices by Ann Cleeves. Another one in the Vera Stanhope series.
  4. What's the weather like?

    It's starting to warm up here. 16C the last few days. A lot better than last week when we were lucky to get above 10C. Spring is definitely here. My hayfever is starting up again.
  5. Book recommendation

    I'm listening to Mythos at the moment Royalberry. It's very good, and Stephen Fry reading it is enjoyable to listen to.
  6. Your Book Activity - July 2018

    Finished The Memory Man by David Baldacci. First one of his I've read. I'll be checking out more of his books.
  7. Home by the Sea - Genesis
  8. Christmas planning and chat

    I'm trying to shop ahead this year. Last year was a last minute rush. I wasn't used to working full-time and ran out of time. But, I'm a terrible shopper so I'm not getting far yet.
  9. I finished Killer Heat by Linda Fairstein and started Tennison by Linda La Plante.
  10. Finished The Year of the Runaways by Sanjeev Sahota. 4 .1/2 out of 5. My best read so far this year.
  11. What's the weather like?

    Awful. We've had extremely heavy rain and thunderstorms all week, mostly at night, so no sleep. There's also been heavy, early snow and more on the way. We're too low where I live for the snow, but it's definitely been cold enough.
  12. Imagining books in your head

    I've noticed recently that some books I tend to 'hear' in my head with an accent. Sometimes the accent is of the country the books set in, sometimes it's not. And it's not all the time.
  13. Ian's reading list 2018

    Good review Ian. I'm a big Ian Rankin fan. Have you read any of the ones originally written under the Jack Harvey pseudonym. I've got them all (all 3) but only read one recently. Quite different to Rebus, but still got Rankin's excellent writing. I agree about the Fox books. I reread those recently, too, and really enjoyed them. It's a shame Rankin hasn't written more of them. Will you be getting the next Rebus when it comes out later this year? I've been dropping hints to my kids since it was announced last year.
  14. Your Book Activity - April 2018

    Finished The Black Path by Asa Larsson. Started Bleeding Hearts by Ian Rankin.
