      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!

Good evening! I am writing you from my little city near Milan, in Italy. I thought it could be a good idea to improve my English by talking with people about interests we have in common ( and of course, if someone wanted to learn something about Italian I could help him).

Maybe I should add something else about me -

I'm a student at a human-sciences high school (is there such a stuff in England?) but there are much more things I'm interested in. However, I've noticed that I easily lose interest in them, so they hardly become "passions". I think I could apply this to books, but for some reason after short periods I always take up reading again. I'm looking for some activities - like reading books together - which will eventually make easier and funnier reading, especially concerning books in English, of which I've read few.

Well, what else can I say? Sorry if I make some mistakes or repeat many times the same words, but my knowledge of English lexicon isn't that good.

I hope I'll have a good time together with you  :D

Thank you all  :smile:


Hello and welcome :)
Your English is perfect!
What are some of your favourite books?


The most impressive book I've read recently is Dangerous lives of altar boys by Chris Fuhrman, the only novel he wrote.

In general I like books that talk about youth and strangeness, or that simply stress the importance of feelings, because I like to look at the characters of a book as to normal people with their good and bad qualities, as in real life, with their absurdities.



Heyyya and welcome to the forums. Don't worry, your English is good. 


I swear I didn't know this song existed xD
