      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

  10. HI Mac - thanks for your comment! I'm really enjoying the book, which is completely different to anything I have ever read. I must admit I was a bit hesitant at first, but the writing really draws you into the story. I'll look forward to reading the sequel...

  11. The Shadow of the Wind is one of my favourite books of recent years. Well...it's in my top fifty, anyway! I hope you're enjoying it. There's the good second novel to look forward to, as well! Have a good evening. x
