      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…

The Buuracombe novels

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Are there any knowledgeable readers on here who know the Burracombe Village series by Lilian Harry? I have an issue with a lack of continuity that I am trying to resolve.

 

Thanks

 

John

I have to ask: is this for a homework assignment? We don't allow new members to sign up just to ask for help with their homework (see the forum rules).

No. My wife and I have read these novels and there seems to be a glaring storyline gap and I just wanted to know if I had missed something or if indeed the gap is just a mistake by the author. I don't see why you would assume something underhand in my query?

My apologies. It's just that we get people asking for help with their homework (or even more often, self-promoting their own book), so when a new member asks for more analytical information on a book and it's the only post they make, it sets off a red flag in my brain. My apologies, I hope someone can help you with your question.

Are you a member of Goodreads? If so (or even if you're not a member), you might be able to find an answer there. Someone might have addressed it in a review, or you can post a question on the page of the relevant book and someone might be able to answer it.
