      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…

Janet's Reading Log 2007

Recommended Posts

I've just finished The Shadow in the North by Philip Pullman. Can't wait for the BBC adaptation now I've read it.

 

Who knows, I might yet manage to read A Christmas Carol before next Tuesday now, seeing as it's only about 140 pages long!

Well, I didn't manage to finish it before Christmas, but I've finally finished A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

 

It lived up to all my expectations - 10/10!

 

I've read 30 books this year (pathetic compared to some, I know!) which is 10 more than I managed in 2006. :lol:

Well it's more than me. And 50% up on last year, that's a pretty good achievement. I think I'll be at 22 by the end of the year.

Thanks guys. :lol: To be fair, I read quite a few short books during the year. Animal Farm was very short as was A Christmas Carol. I also read quite a few children's books and again, they tend to be quick reads.
