  4. Do You Mark Your Books?

    I'm like Hux. I stick a post-it note in the front of fiction with the page number and why. It's quite rare though. For non-fiction I do the same but might also pencil mark the exact spot.

    Googling it came up with Amazon having a first edition copy for over £700. Going straight to Amazon, they'd never heard of it, so Google it first. If you have a copy, you could be lucky.
  6. How to Read a Book

    I wish I had the time to read all the books, I'd like to. 'How to Read a Book' looked right up my street and it led me on to another 'How to be a Brit'. I read the sample and it's well worth a read to find out what others notice about the Brits.

    Thanks for all these alerts.

    A big welcome to all you refugees! It's very friendly here and I'm sure you'll get to feel part of the forum soon.

    There's a few of us regular lurkers...
  10. The Book Club Forum Awards 2020!

    A Poem for Every Day of the Year - Edited by Allie Esiri I've got two of these books and they're great to dip into if you're busy. The introduction for 31st December starts by saying 'New Year's Eve is a time for parties and festivities, singing and dancing...' Huh! However, the last verse of Alfred, Lord Tennyson's poem contains the words 'Ring out the darkness of the land,' Maybe that's a good idea!

    All the kindle books in my Dark Moon Series are 0.99p on Amazon until 6th January 2021. All set in Kent and the Isle of Wight. The one set on the Isle of Wight was the winner in the Best Historical Fiction category in the Bards and Sages 2018 eFestival of Words. I wish you all a happy, healthy and safe new year and I hope you'll love every book you choose to read!
  12. Thomas Hardy

    Far From the Madding Crowd was on TV not so long ago and I loved it, but still there were parts where I yearned for a better outcome. I guess the author was a man of his tough times.

  14. What Are You Watching Now? - 2020

    I've been wading my way through box sets and long series like my current one - Morse. It's yonks since I watched Morse and I always used to fall asleep before the ending so I never knew whodunnit, now, thanks to lockdown, I can find out the culprit.
  15. Hello!

    Yes, lockdown has given me more time for all things reading and writing but I could still do with more! Your books look interesting.
  16. Hello there! *Waves*

    Hi Katty, join the club - the club with a lot of people who probably can say the same as you - we have long tbr lists - I certainly have. During lockdown I made a little progress - I read two. And I love reading, I just don't get time. I do listen to books though. Anna

    Your post would have been removed, Phil, if it was not allowed. I expect you love to read books too!

    Crikey, sorry, I'd no idea the attachment was going to be so huge. I thought I'd add some colour... Should I take it down?
  20. Kindle and ebooks deals

    'Immortality: This is Probably a Novel' by Anna Faversham is 0.99 on Amazon as an ebook until 16th August or FREE for Kindle Unlimited members. If a stranger said to you, “Let me take you to the world’s best kept secret,” would you go? Chester was not given the choice and he’d much rather be with Kate, the woman he loves and has left behind. In fear of his life, he is hiding in a remote cabin in New Zealand, so who is this person and what is this secret? You are invited into a mystery: intriguing, exciting and deadly. Powerful, moving and thought provoking.
  21. Bill Bryson

    I've just finished listening to the audio version of Bill Bryson's 'The Road to Little Dribbling'. It's great. He doesn't sound such a happy bunny these days but his observations on the things that are concerning him about the UK are witty, wry and worth considering. Excellent value, 11 CDs. Edit: I'm not sure if I should have started a new thread, I just didn't know where to put this - please move it if it should be somewhere else!
  22. Poldark

    Goodness, I'm a long time in replying! Sorry about that. I've now ticked the little box to notify me of replies! Thank you for downloading One Dark Night and I hope you enjoy it. The location is in Kent but not in the perfick bit where Pa Larkin lives. My son lives in that part and good friends do too and it is so beautiful. One Dark Night is set on the coast. But coming from Aotearoa you'll know all about beautiful scenery. I have dual nationality UK/NZ. I was there last summer (yours). Wonderful Welly and a few other places. Sigh...
  23. Matt Johnson - crime thriller author and your newest member

    Hello Matt and welcome and thanks for your service in keeping us all safe. I really appreciate it and I'm sure many more people do but don't get the chance to say thank you. You do what we cannot. Writing is very therapeutic, so many people say. Keeping a diary is the best therapy, so long as no one else reads it! Putting thoughts down that you don't want to carry around with you is useful. I enjoy writing novels, not for therapy, but to write what I would like to read and hasn't been written yet. I'm on my fourth now. It keeps me very busy. And reading - oh yay! I just wish I had more time in every day. I love reading, just adore getting lost in a good book. I hope you'll enjoy the forum - there's plenty to find on here. There's a writing thread somewhere...

    Hi Poppy in Aotearoa, I'm dual Kiwi/Brit and have just returned from the land of the long white cloud. Wellington, as they say, cannot be beaten on a sunny day. So special. I tried to find Kicking the Tyres on Amazon but it didn't show up. I wish Michael success with his downloads - go everyone, it's free.
  25. Poldark

    I read some of the Poldark books a long time ago and I've been watching the TV series - I love it. I've stopped reading the books because I've written two books which readers say are like Poldark and I don't want to be influenced by his writing, so I've stopped! The books are the originals but I think one of the scenes was altered a bit - can't remember exactly how but it was the scene where Ross rode over to Elizabeth and they ended up in bed together. It differs from the book a little. I'm writing the last book of my trilogy and that means it won't be too long before I can finish reading the whole series. A treat in store.
