      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

Obviously we can't cover all the options, so if we've missed your country out then please don't be offended. You have an 'other' option so please tick that and then post your answer in the thread.

 

If you now live in a different country from that in which you were born, please tell us about it. :D

I'll kick off - I'm from England.

 

I was born in All Saints Hospital Chatham and lived in Higham, Kent for the first (nearly) 22 years, when I moved to Somerset after my marriage. :D

I'm from the U.S., and I've lived in Washington State all my life. I was born in Tacoma and I grew up on Bainbridge Island, a little island just off Seattle in Puget Sound. I've also lived in Seattle, Bellingham, Lynnwood, and now in Gig Harbor. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. :D

I'm from New Zealand. I was born in Auckland in the North Island but now live in the upper part of the South Island. Contrary to popular belief, we can't walk to Australia when the tide is out. :D

No, Carly didn't say hey after everything. She was easy to understand, but I was used to meeting lot's of different people by the time I went to Africa, especially Irish people. Lot's of Irish students in Liverpool.

 

I'm from Germany :D
