      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

    I enjoy cooking, eating, reading, keeping fit & my holidays to far away destinations. Would like to go travelling 1 day and experience what the world has to offer & have my own love story a long the way. I'm a big sucker for romance!!!! XX

      Yeah it's meant to be the hardest workout on DVD. It's all about maximum interval training. Can change your body in 60 days & the reviews seem to agree. It's certainly intense tho

      Yeah, my sister is doing that to lose weight from having 2 babies. She says it can make you feel sick sometimes and that she just wants to stop after the warm-up!
