      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…

It is a great view and we have some great sunsets. But don't be fooled, i live in a street, just lucky to be at the end of it. Sadly there are plans pending for houses right in the foreground of that pic'.:17:

I voted other simply because my history is way too confusing to fit anything else. Let's see, I was born in States, grew up mainly in France, but also in SA, US (not where I was born, though, another state), and Finland. I'm currently living in Finland again (after some time in France and couple of states in US), but at the moment I'm in the US.

I don't find Italy in the list! :P

Born in Rome and I still live here!

 

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.

Your English is very good (I don't speak any languages well enough to communicate in writing - I can just about get by in very basic French - but only talking) so don't worry about it - we can understand you perfectly. :17:

If you look at my original reply to this thread, Julia, you'll see that we're in very similar situations.

I was born in Zimbabwe and moved to England when I was 5 years old. My dad was England and his family had moved to Zimbabwe when he was a young boy. Most of the rest of my family still live in Zimbabwe

I was born in England, "down south" so my boyfriend says, in the city of Bath, then when we had been together for a while I moved up north to be with him in his home town of Lincoln

I'm the only Republic of Ireland person here! That doesn't surprise me. The Republic is a bit cut off from the technological world - the only Irish peeps I've ever met online are Northern Irish people. No idea why that is.

 

Anyway yes, I'm a born and raised West Ireland country cail
