      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

  1. Oh yes!! I just thought I would probably want to get a fresh start at the new year, as I am one of those people who makes lots of plans at the beginning of every year. I hope that's also okay!! Yeah, I definitely am already finding it a bit difficult to not buy any books even though I've only been on this no-buy for about a month.
  2. Hi everyone!! I realize most people tend to start these posts at the beginning of the year, but since I am a newcomer and am quite impatient, I figured I'd start one for the rest of this year. I hope that is okay and doesn't break any rules. I am quite behind on my reading goal for this year. My goal was 50 books and I am currently at around 25. I am hoping that documenting my reading here will help to motivate me reach my goal as I tend to enjoy discussing what I'm reading with others, and as an extremely shy introvert, that is not always an option in real life unfortunately. A little bit about my reading, I tend to buy books far faster than I read them therefore I am currently not buying any books and will try to stick to that until I read all (or at least, most of) what I currently own. My favorite genres are classics, literary fiction and I have recently gotten into romance (and of course the first thing I did was go on ebay and buy tons of used romance paperbacks, spending all my money on them). I am also trying to read more non-fiction. I read Crime and Punishment and Anna Karenina not too long ago and absolutely fell in love!! And so it is also a goal of mine to read all of Dostoyevsky's and Tolstoy's works (although I do not own all of Tolstoy's works so I can't see myself accomplishing that goal any time soon, at least not without breaking my no-buy). Anyway, I'm really glad I found this community and look forward to discussing books with you all!
  3. Currently reading Maggie O'Farrell's Hamnet and I am thinking of finally starting The Count of Monte Cristo for a book club.
