      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

    Thanks Gaia And a big thank you for doing these read-a-thons throughout the year !

    I`m happy to read-a-thon whenever`s good for everyone else, too.
  8. Good Luck with the Book Purge ! I `donated` around 25 books to a neighbour this year ( lots more to look through... )
  9. Read-a-thon 2018

    Thank you ! I did manage more reading than I thought ; I seem to have read the 5 books in Charlotte Macloed`s Grub-and-Stakers series, over 4 days. It`s a fun series, though not as good as her Peter Shandy or Sarah Kelling & Max Bittersohn series. Taking place in a small town in Canada, it`s enjoyably silly ( though, I did have a bit of trouble with a couple of the characters - one of them speaks in a Scotch dialect and another using Regency vocabulary - it was sometimes a bit awkward to read ). I might re-read the first Peter Shandy book this month ; a Xmas themed book called Rest You Merry.
  10. Read-a-thon 2018

    I have yet another stoopid migraine now so won`t be reading as much as I`d like; I did finish off EE Holmes` Heart of the Rebellion last night, which was excellent, and also read a Charlotte MacLeod mystery - The Grub-and-Stakers Move a Mountain ( also v. good ). i`m hopefully reading a bit of the next Grub-and-Stakers book tonight .
  11. Read-a-thon 2018

    Count me in, too.
  12. Little Pixie`s Bookshelf 2018

    Aw, hope you enjoy them. And yay for hardbacks !
  13. Brian's Book Log - Ongoing

    Lovely book pics. Are you going to try the Wallander series ? I loved the Krister Henrikson ones.
  14. Your Book Activity - November 2018

    I read that years ago ! No idea about the scandal.
  15. Little Pixie`s Bookshelf 2018

    Hurray ! Amazon are doing another Kindle Unlimited 3-month thingy, so I`ll subscribe to that in a few days. Looking forward to the Wicked Witches of the Midwest books and EE Holmes latest ( which isn`t available yet, but should be in December, hopefully ).
