      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!

So hot did the room become that the Sheikh outfit he was wearing, was saturated in 😰 sweat. 

Martin decided that the Saudi experience could wait.... if that was Saudi life then by god he is glad to be English. 

These thoughts returned to him through the veil of slumber he was engaged in.

'Marty???' it screeched, 'Is that you??'

'Yer..ess? Possibly. Who's this?' answered Martin uncertainly, holding the receiver well away from his ear and hoping the ringing he was experiencing quickly subsided.

'It's me! Roxy! What are you doing?'

'Well, I was just about to ...
