      March Supporter Giveaway   03/02/2019

      So March has crept up on us and I'm thrilled to finally show you the GREAT (he he...) March giveaway!     This time we have a gorgeous print of The Great Gatsby's most famous line from thestorygift.co.uk AND a Great Gatsby tea from the Literary Tea Company! This particular tea is Peach Blossom (which sounds delicious and I kind of wish I could keep it myself...) and the tin features another Gatsby quote.  If you'd like to see the other literary teas available (there are lots, I spent ages looking) you can find them both at the Literary Tea Company's etsy store (https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LiteraryTeaCompany) or at their own website, theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and if you're not a supporter but want to be included in this months giveaway you can become a supporter on patreon here... https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   A winner will be chosen at random on the last day of the month. Good luck!

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.
