      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

I was wondering if anyone was interesting in reviving the JABG? I'd love to sink my teeth into the novels again and it would be so much more enjoyable with others. Any takers?

I'm ashamed to admit this but I have never read any of Austen's work before.  I've always wanted to but for some reason I've never quite managed to find the motivation to actually get around to reading them, so I would certainly be interested in participating.  In fact I think reading them as part of a book group would be ideal.

I haven't read any Jane Austen book, part of that reason is that I have a big omnibus edition that's heavy to hold. I plan on reading the books eventually but there are other books on my TBR I want to get to first. If there are enough people wanting to read them though I'll see if I feel up for it and have enough energy, to read along with you all. So it's a "maybe" from me :).

Hello hello? I know I'm a little late (What's a few years between between bookpals?☺)but I've been feeling the call of my J.A. books recently. So, if numbers are still gathering, I'd like to read along too.
