  1. Hi Hayley - I don't visit The Book Club forum very often but a member has updated me and said that you have saved this valuable club. I'd just like to say thank you and I think it is good (if regrettable) that there are adverts on show now. I'm assuming that the more clicks on these adverts, the more The Book Club is supported. So I'll go and click on something and take a look at what the advertiser has to offer.

      Thank you Anna, that was a really nice message to get. I can't say my motives were completely unselfish - I would have been very sad to lose the forum and I'm really grateful to all the people who stuck around (you included!) and who really make the forum what it is. The ads are regrettable (especially when they start popping up in weird places instead of where they're meant to be!) but they are really helping. Thank you for wanting to help support the forum. You are right about how the ads work but I can't really comment more than that because of the AdSense rules.

      Do you know we have a patreon now? https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum . I can't take any credit for the page, I had a lot of help setting it up. But if you wanted to use that to support instead, you get entered into a seasonal prize draw :) (I can't wait to announce the Autumn one, I found such a good prize - if I do say so myself :D)

  2. Just aying hello...where is everyone these days...?

  4. My Goodreads perpetually tells me I am one book ahead of schedule, no matter how fast I read. It's not very motivating.

      Hayley

      I'd prefer that to my 'you are currently 5 books behind schedule' :D

  5. That feeling you get when you get a great recommendation for a book and no matter where you look, it can't be found. Ugh.

  6. Today hasn't been a good day, there were several bad news things that happened (in short, a death, an accident, financial stuff). I am not feeling well but will elaborate probably tomorrow in a post somewhere. I don't have the time nor the energy at the moment to read all the new posts but I will do so tomorrow. Hopefully a better day.

  7. Really not having a good year so far... so fed up :/

      Thank you everyone, it's just so frustrating when lots of things go wrong at the same time. Inver when I read that I got an image of a sort of comicon for books, and that would be amazing XD

  9. Heartbroken today, after having one of our cats put to sleep :(

  10. My boyfriend's 15-year-old nephew has died :(. It's very sad and sudden. May he rest in peace :(.

      That's so sad, I'm really sorry to hear that :(

  11. I've been sidetracked by a big bowl of popcorn.

      As I scrolled down I read that as 'I've been attacked by a big bowl of popcorn'. I think I need a nap XD

  12. Strange but good day today - I passed my degree with a first and then found out I've been offered a place on the masters course I wanted. Feel a bit like I've been dreaming it!

  14. My dog just had his hair cut and now he looks like Yoda!

    1. Hayley

      Hayley

      Haha! Thankfully they didn't turn him green! It's more the over-sized ears that gave him the Yoda look! I will try to get a picture up later, do we already have a pet thread?

  15. I have over two hundred books on TBR and yet I can't pick one out to read. Unbelievable.

      Read The Prisoner of Heaven! It's brilliant, you actually do have to read it :D

      That's my plan too, scary how quickly exams and deadlines creep up on you!

  19. Started Robinson Crusoe then put it down after 5 pages. His sentence structure is appalling!

    1. Hayley

      Hayley

      It was the lengthy sections about his fence that got me. It does get pretty interesting about 3/4 of the way through though...

  20. What is it when you know you're somewhere but you're watching yourself from outside?

  21. Happy King's Day (it's Christmas here in Spain today)

  22. Why is it that when you have to read a book in a certain amount of time, it seems to take so much longer than usual? :/

      might be partly because I keep procrastinating by coming on here lol

  23. Watching UP - how come a simple opening sequence of an animated movie can bring a tear to my eye? What a soppy thing I am!

    1. Hayley

      Hayley

      It always gets me too and I never cry at films! I love the dog though :D
