      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…

Would I get a Naughty Point for giving the publisher a plug ? The books are available for US Kindle from $1.99 - $3.99, and are well worth the money, imo. :D

 

No, I think that is fine :).

It's awesome they gave you the books for free :o!

And it's nice you got to keep the omnibus :)!

Here's what cheered me up today:

- my boss was out of town, so less stress

- it's FRIDAY! :yahoo:

- recently rediscovered this song, which has been happily buzzing in my dead all day

It's a bit of a odd one but I managed to tick everything off of my to-do list for today without getting too distracted by the TV or YouTube.

Christmas Jumper today at work and seeing all the staff and clients really getting into it in their finery (including me) - that and the fact that it was (still is) Friday - oh, and coming home to my 2 lovely pussy cats.

We had Xmas jumper day too, I couldn't find mine but there were some lovely ones, including Chewbacca (from Star Wars) with antlers which had flashing lights, and a human advent calendar.

What kind of design / colours have you got on your nails? Nail art fascinates me, I think probably because I've always had super short nails.

I will have another nephew and he will be here to greet us at the beginning of October. 

 

Congratulations for impending new nephew! 

 

My cheer up yesterday (Thursday) was finding a pack of silver earring attachments that I had mislaid 3 months ago. A tiny packet, that had slipped in with an completely unrelated bag of bits! I hadn't realised how bugged I was about it until I found them. :D
