      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

Hi all, been away, now I'm back

Recommended Posts

I was a member a few years ago but drifted away, nice to be back 

I read almost anything as long as it keeps my interest. Looking forward to some recommendations.

Those of you who know Spanish will understand my Username, or not!

I'm also a big wine drinker and read anything to do with the subject, fiction or non fiction, just finished reading the Billionaire's Vinegar (great read even if you don't drink or like wine).

Books I've got to read currently sitting on the shelf are

The Queen of the South - Arturo Perez- Reverte

The Seville Communion - Arturo Perez - Reverte

The Silent Companions - Laura Purcell

The Dead Fathers Club - Matt Haig

 

Salud & Read well

Welcome back! :)

 

I've been hearing a lot of good things about Matt Haig recently and 'The Dead Fathers Club' sounds like a really interesting place to start.

 

Out of interest, what fiction have you read that's related to wine?

I also enjoy wine. My favorite Spanish wine is La Rioja Alta, both the 904 Grand Reserve and the Ardanza. I hope that you may be able to recommend some other nice Spanish wines.

Welcome Back! I enjoy reading Matt Haig's book, but I haven't read 'The Dead Fathers Club'. I hope you enjoy it.:)

Hi Hayley

There are not many fiction wine books, most are in the romance genre, although I read a couple of good Mystery crime novels set in the world of wine

The Dark Vineyard - Martin Walker

A Long Finish - Michael Dibdin

 

If you enjoy comedy then.... 

Sideways - Rex Pickett is very good

 

Regarding Mat Haig, I read 'Humans' which was excellent
