      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

  1. I'm totally new to Manga, I didn't know where to start so I grabbed a random volume 1 from the library it was Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad. I'm now 4 volumes in really good stuff

    Also read Full Metal Alchemist volume 1 which was very promising



  2. I am a big fan of westerns, especially those written by British authors in the 70s and 80s(some of George Gilman's Edge series have gone for about £50 on ebay) westerns are easy to pick up second hand on ebay and the like. As for new westerns I think they are still quite popular in America where long running series like the Gunsmith and Longarm are still published. The success of movies like Brokeback Mountain and True Grit can only help the literary Western authors

  3. I grew up next to Forest Hall library in Newcastle, my Mam still uses it to this day(40+ years). I've been a member of the local library where ever I've lived, Elgin was probably the best the staff were class, my current library here in Oz is also excellent

    Libraries seem to be easy targets for council cuts, but to my mind they are an esential part of community life.

    I love libraries long may they prosper.
