      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. Visiting London Bookstores

    Just wanted to update everyone that I made it to and from London safely! The book shoppes were fabulous - I have to say that I think my favorite was the new(ish?) Waterstones near Piccadilly. I mean honestly... it was pretty much heaven. I brought back a whole extra bag of books (husband's frequent flier status allowed for extra baggage), and even read a few books while I was in London! Totally a success. Thanks to everyone who helped out by giving me suggestions! I appreciate it!
  2. Happy Birthday Bethany. I hope all is well and happy with you, x

  3. Visiting London Bookstores

    This is amazing, Vodkafan! Thank you so, so much! I'm more than happy to both split them up over multiple days (I'll be there about 5 days), and also happy to walk quite a bit... NYC living prepared me for lots of walking, so I'm good to go there. I appreciate you grouping these together for me - gives me a lay of the land, and a plan about how to break things up over a few different outings. Excited to make it to as many of these as I can!
  4. Visiting London Bookstores

    My trip IS soon! I'm compiling my list today to start building out my routes, so I came back to this thread for reference. I'll be leaving Friday, arriving Saturday. I think the bookstores I'm going to hit up for sure are in the following areas... Anyone know which may be good to group together, just in terms of proximity? Foyles - Charing Cross, SOHO Secondhand stores off from Charing Cross, towards Trafalgar Square (Cecil Court) Waterstones - Piccadilly Lutyens & Rubenstein - Notting Hill Daunt Books - Marylebone (seems like everyone suggestions this one as the best Daunt Books... is this accurate?) Primrose Hill Books

    This is awesome - Thank you, guys! I HOPE I have to buy an extra suitcase or mail my large volume of books I find.
  7. Visiting London Bookstores

    Hi guys I'm planning a trip to London for a week, and plan to spend a day just visiting different bookstores around the city. I've started doing some research and compiling a list... then it hit me that you guys would probably be a great resource. If it helps to know, I'd like to visit both some chains and independents, and I read mostly fiction novels. I'm also hoping to just visit some stores that maybe have a unique or special atmosphere, even if their book topics aren't things I buy all the time. Some of the ones I'm eyeing so far are... Daunt Books Clerkenwell Tales Waterstone's Stoke Newington Book Shop Any suggestions? Thanks so much! Beth
