        I'm thrilled to (finally, sorry for the delay!) announce the January giveaway, with a Sherlock Holmes theme! Supporters can win a beautiful little hardback edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as well as a stylish a5 print by www.thestorygift.co.uk/, featuring some witty advice from the great detective.     As always, if you support on patreon or if you supported before patreon (and did so less than twelve months ago), you'll be entered into the giveaway automatically. If you're not a supporter but want to take part, you can support for this month here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   The winner will be selected at random on January 31st. Good luck!

  1. I finished Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie and I'm now reading Buried Angels by Camilla Lackberg.
  2. I've never looked at reviews when deciding whether to read a book. Everyone's got different tastes and I figure I might like something others don't. The only reviews I read are the ones people post on here, and If a book sounds interesting I'll add it to my wish list.
  3. Started Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie.
  4. Finished The Redeemer by Jo Nesbo and now reading Death at La Fenice by Donna Leon.
  5. What's the weather like?

    We had another massive thunderstorm on Christmas Day. Lost power for a few hours. Luckily we could still do the barbecue in the garage. Our street flooded as well. Since Christmas the weather has been good, so hope it stays that way now.
  6. What's the weather like?

    A beautiful day today. Not too hot. A relief after the massive thunderstorms we've had every day for the last two weeks. A couple of days the thunder was rumbling non-stop for over an hour. We've had flooding here twice in the last two weeks.
  7. Your Book Activity - December 2018

    Finished Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood last night.
  9. Your Book Activity - November 2018

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

    Has anyone read her latest The Punishment She Deserves. I read it a few months ago and loved it.
  12. Your Book Activity - November 2018

    Finished Silent Voices by Ann Cleeves. Another one in the Vera Stanhope series.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
