      Summer Supporter Giveaway   08/31/2020

      Going on a Summer Holiday (Sort Of...)     The summer giveaway for Patreon supporters is finally here and this time we're doing something a little bit different. I want supporters to tell me where you would go on holiday, if you could go anywhere. The winner will receive a bookish prize based on their answer!   Terms and conditions are as usual. Patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the giveaway and selected at random. As we're a little late this year the draw will be held on the second weekend of September. If you aren't currently a supporter but want to be involved in the giveaway you can sign up to support us here:   https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum

    Settling In
  1. yes that would work for Frank Herberts original 6 books. When you start with the Brian Herbert & Kevin Anderson series you should read in sequence from the beginning. That said the House of ..... trilogy is worth your time and the current School of ...... trilogy is quite good [even if the third novel has yet to be published]. Whatever you do DO NOT READ: worms & hunters of Dune as they are really shhhhhhh!

  3. Book buys: Internet or bookshop?

    I love browsing in any bookstore, I do like the internet prices better. I generally buy books at both, especially to keep the bookstore alive. But too often I did order a specific English book and they come with a different version, Like ordering the US edition of Dr. Sleep and getting the UK version. When I ask them about it they tend to be angry with me for asking such stupid things. And then I order for a while on the internet. I just bought a collection of 30's Edgar Wallaces in their red hardcovers, and those you find on the net easier than in most shops.
