      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

  1. Haruki Murakami

    Hello, If I have posted this in the wrong place, please move as appropriate, thank you:) I thought I would start a topic about Haruki Murakami, since quite a few of our members enjoy his work. Haruki Murakami, born January 12, 1949) is a popular contemporary Japanese writer and translator. His work has been described by the Virginia Quarterly Review as "easily accessible, yet profoundly complex". Novels ~ (The year shown is the year the book was published in English) 1987 Hear the Wind Sing 1985 Pinball, 1973 1989 A Wild Sheep Chase 1991 Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World 1994 Dance Dance Dance 1997 The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle 2000 Norwegian Wood 2000 South of the Border, West of the Sun 2001 Sputnik Sweetheart 2005 Kafka on the Shore 2007 After Dark Further information can be found Here (Source ~ Wikipedia) I have read so far by Haruki Murakami, 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle', 'Kafka on the Shore' and 'Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman' and they have all made an impact, Haruki Murakami is amazingly talented and his characters are memorable, just an excellent writer. I have on my TBR pile, 'Dance Dance Dance', 'South of the Border, West of the Sun' and 'Sputnik Sweetheart'

    Hi bobblybear I think you will enjoy 'Our Endless Numbered Days', its one of these books that stays with you. I preferred 'Station Eleven' to 'The Lola Quartet', the characters were interesting but I wasn't that bothered what happened to them, as opposed to 'Station Eleven', I wanted to know what happened to the characters. I also have 'Last Night in Montreal' on my kindle, let me know how you find it
