      June Supporter Giveaway   06/01/2019

      For the June giveaway I chose the theme 'The Gift of Reading.' One that I think we can all appreciate! The winner will receive four books, including:     The Gifts of Reading by Robert MacFarlane - 'An essay on the joy of reading, for anyone who has ever loved a book.'   plus three little short but (hopefully) thought provoking reading gifts...   The Reckoning by Edith Wharton - 'Two moving stories of love, loss, desire and divorce, from one of the great chroniclers of nineteenth-century New York life.' Create Dangerously by Albert Camus - 'Camus argues passionately that the artist has a responsibility to challenge, provoke and speak up for those who cannot in this powerful speech, accompanied here by two others.' It Was Snowing Butterflies by Charles Darwin - 'A selection of Darwin's extraordinary adventures during the voyage of the Beagle.'    As always, supporting members will be entered automatically into the random draw at the end of the month. If you want to be entered into the draw but don't support yet, you can do so here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum   Good luck

Well, how weird, I've searched and can't find anything.?? So I'll ask here.

What's your favourite Maeve Binchy novel?

 

Don't tramp!e me in the stampede!!:o

 

I've read and loved Whitethorn Woods and the Copper Beech, meaning to read further but you know how it is, loadsa books out there.

Now it's time to choose from the ranks again.

I feel so at peace reading these novels, as if they're part of me. I'm just dithering about which to carry on with! 

So Help please! ☺

 

Happy :readingtwo: All.

I read an omnibus containing The Copper Beech and Evening Class many years ago, and liked it okish at the time. I don't remember much of it, though I think one of the two involved religion, and I wasn't too keen on that aspect of the story (at the time). I liked both Star Sullivan and Full House, two QuickReads releases by Maeve Binchy, which I read some years ago. I haven't picked up anything else since by her. I think liking that omnibus so-so kind of put me off trying more of her work, but maybe I'll read more of her some day. I did quite like the two QuickReads novellas.

Thanks Athena. :smile:

The tribulations we bookworms go through dithering over that next choice. I know I'm just marking time, till I zoom in on it :D

Long time since I've read anything by her, but agree, they're  lovely books to get lost in. I remember particularly enjoying Evening Class, Quentins and Scarlet Feather.

I've got it - the Glass Lake. ☺ That took a bit of sniffing out! Sounds just right, perfect for relaxing into, with a hint of mystery. It's next up, though I'll probably sneak a page or two while I finish my current read.

 

(By the way, I've just noticed your "Book Wyrm"  Poppy. I've just finished "Nevernight" by Jay Kristoff  (just a little fantasy thing about teenage assassins in training) There's a library, there's bookworms. The books are very safe. The bookworms are monstrous creatures prowling the endless aisles eating unwary humans who cross their paths!

You wouldn't go for a mooch around those shelves unless you were bristling with weapons!😁!)
