      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      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…

How many books have you read this year?

Recommended Posts

5.

 

I did quite well in January, finishing 4 books, but it's taken me nearly two months to read the last one.

 

With a quarter of the year almost gone, that will mean par of around 20 for this year!

I am quite proud of the one I've finished, as I did so with little confusion and much enjoyment, despite the time it took.

 

I'm looking for my second book.  It really has to be something that draws me in to keep motivation to press on.

I'm up to 45 now somehow, I don't feel like I've had a great reading year so far.

I'm a bit behind tis year at 66. I set myself a goal at the beginning of this year to read 100, but have downgraded it to 85. At the moment I'm not sure if I'm likely to achieve that either. It doesn't matter that much though as there are other things to life than just reading, as much as I enjoy it!

66 sounds good to me!

 

I'm on 24. I don't think I'll be reaching my target of 50 but I have read some great books this year!
