      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…

Google Today

Has anyone had a look at the kids competition for the 'Google' logo title pages things. Have just noticed this. If you go to the 'Google' page just under the main headings you will see a bit that says 'U.K. kids design a Google logo'. You can view them in 4 different age categorys, then vote for your favourite from each one.....some of the designs are really clever. :blush:

Hope this is ok to post here if not I understand if deleted.

The design for the Google home page is pretty today. Think it is Earth Day today, so must be in honour of that.

 

I like when they do something different with it :roll:

I actually saw that and thought the same thing today, Inver. :roll: They do cool things with their logos around the holidays and special days.. They're usually so pretty.

Wonder if they could make up one for 'Washing on the Line' day with a washing line :roll:

Thanks for the link ;)

 

I love the Hungry Caterpillar one and the Dr Seuss one. :roll: I love when Google changes the logo - plus it reminds me of certain days, such as the first day of Spring. I wonder if they will be one for St George's day tomorrow

It is a great one today :) A cross between St George's Day and Shakespeare's birthday which has St George and the dragon posing as Romeo and Juliet :D I think that is my favourite one yet.

Hmmm, I think yesterdays was much nicer. The one they did for St.David's Day was lovely but it doesn't seem to be on that site with the others.........

Samuel Morse's birthday.

 

You just have to trace your mouse over it and it tells you.

I thought that's what it was, also, but then I thought maybe my screen was just messed up for a bit.. :) I'm still not totally positive, but seeing as how that's your assumption, too, Chrissy, I'm going to go with it! Just slightly confusing as the Google icon usually goes with a certain day... ?? Not up on enough Morse code to know how it could relate.
