      Late Autumn Supporter Giveaway   11/27/2020

      I know that winter is well on the way, but I'm sneaking the autumn giveaway in here, right at the end of the season...     I thought this giveaway seemed particularly appropriate for this year: Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books by Cathy Rentzenbrink.  I'm sure some of you will have heard of this book. It came out in September and has had brilliant reviews. It's been described as a love letter to reading and I think all of us have truly appreciated 'the comfort and joy of books' this year.  It is also a really beautiful hardback. Please excuse my picture-taking skills, it's really hard to get a good picture of something that's shiny!   As always, patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the draw. If you're not a supporter but you'd like to join our patreon you can do so here:  bookclubforum.co.uk is creating a book community | Patreon

  1. Ready Player One was very good. Not a lot of crime, but plenty of VR. I'm looking for a sci-fi as well. I really enjoyed the Ender's Game series, and similar books. (Seeds of Earth etc)
  2. It's a bit dark in some areas, but Jason Bourne is an excellent thriller.
  3. John Steinbeck

    Steinbeck has an almost pragmatic way of showing how depressing the world is. (if that makes any sense) His simplistic style was one of the reasons I was drawn to The Pearl , a simplistic way of illustrating the total breakdown of a man for greed. It was deliciously brutal and straightforward.
  4. Hello There!

    Science fiction, mystery. As for video games, anything goes.
  5. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

    As someone who has struggled with bouts of depression, I can tell you one big reason to avoid 13 Reasons Why. Hannah's reason for suicide was mostly based on vengeance. People don't commit suicide because they're angry. They commit suicide because they are so utterly lost, helpless, and isolated. It it a decent novel? Sure! But not an accurate one. I mostly say this because of some media hype surrounding the Netflix adaptation. I've already come across embarrassingly inaccurate articles about how Hannah could be compared to teens today, and a bunch of other hogwash.
  6. Hello There!

    I'm not the best at introductions... Hi! You can call me John. Or Qoajo. I don't care. Aside from books, I enjoy video games, science, and computers in general. I'm excited to meet the community here!
