      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…

Where in the World?

Recommended Posts

OK, i've nicked from another forum i go on, and it seems popular on there so thought i might try it on here.

 

You either describe or post a photo of a City somewhere in the World, and people have to guess which City it is. Whoever gets it right goes next.

 

So i'll start with this. (The last part should give it away so it's a pretty easy one to start with :giggle2:)

 

This is a City known for its well-preserved medieval core and Jewish quarter.

 

Old Town – ringed by Planty Park and remnants of the city’s medieval walls – is centered on the stately, expansive Rynek Glówny (market square), site of Cloth Hall, a Renaissance-era trading outpost, and St. Mary’s Basilica, a 14th-century Gothic church.

 

So, where in the World am i?

Okay -- I had to Google it to find the answer, though -- Krakow, Poland.

 

I'm going to tweak mine a bit and add a bookish twist:

 

This island is the setting of a series of books about a headstrong, yet loveable, red-headed orphan.

 

Where am I?

Isn't it a state in the United States? I suppose that might not be what you're referring to. I once had to do a project on the state Georgia in the US, for school (I'm from the Netherlands, each group of teenagers was assigned a state). I don't remember a whole lot from it, but I do remember I found it interesting. You're probably not referring to the state though I think? It's just what popped into my head. I'm not that familiar with all the states of the United States, but that one always stuck in my head because of the project I had to do.

No, though I can't rule out the possibility that there is something like that in Norway.
