      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

Supporter Membership

Unfortunately running this forum does cost money - the software needs renewing every 6 months, and I try to help out with server costs every month.


I've never been very successful at running adverts on the site - this is probably due to the fact that many people use ad blockers, plus most simply forget to click on them. I'm also not a fan of ads on other sites, and so try to keep them to a minimum on here. 


One thing I do offer is Supporter Membership - this will give extra PM storage, a small extra section on the forum, extra entries into any competition etc. But most importantly, that payment helps keep this little corner of the web running, and is very much appreciated. The cost is for a year, and I've decided to leave the amount up to you. It used to be £10, if you wish to use that as a guide, but the smallest amount helps, and if you're feeling more generous, you will have my undying gratitude! :yes:


I can accept paypal, cheque or direct bank transfer - simply send me a PM, and I will get it set up.
You can use this link to go direct to my PayPal.


Thank you for your support  :kiss:

This is just to let some of my lovely supporters know that according to my notes, most of you helped out last January, and therefore your year has come to an end. If you would like to support for a further year I'd be very grateful, if you don't or can't, then that is no problem at all. If my notes are wrong, do let me know! Thank you all! :)
