      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

  2. Read-a-thon 2020

    That's fine with me! I actually thought the read-a-thon was last weekend, so I will be doing the read-a-thon twice in one month
  3. Read-a-thon 2020

    I'll be taking part this weekend. I am currently reading 'Misery' by Stephen King. So I'd like to finish that, if possible.

  6. Read-a-thon - 2017

    So far, I'm really enjoying 'The Drawing of the Three'. It has a much different atmosphere about it and it is much more exciting. It has changed my mind about this series.
  7. Read-a-thon - 2017

    My reading progress is slow. I didn't read anything yesterday, but today so far, I've read about 20/30% of 'The Drawing of the Three' by Stephen King. i'd really like to finish this, this weekend.
  8. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    Last night I went to the cinema to watch 'Spiderman:Homecoming'. I was nervous about going to see another reboot of the 'Spiderman' series, but I really enjoyed this.
  9. Read-a-thon - 2017

    I'm happy to join in with this month's read-a-thon! I did participate in last month's, but forgot to post my stats on here
  10. Your Book Activity - July 2017

    You're right, this really starts the story. I'm enjoying this much more than 'The Gunslinger' so far, the writing is much more of what I would expect Stephen King to create. It kind of almost makes me wish that King hadn't bothered with the first book and condensed the majority of it into 'The Drawing Of The Three' , if that would be at all possible.
  11. hello

    Hi! What kind of books do you like reading?
  12. Your Book Activity - July 2017

    I finished 'The Gunslinger' by Stephen King and was generally disappointed with it. I couldn't work it out until nearly the end, where it finally gained my interest. So much so, that I've started 'The Drawing of the Three' the second book of the series. If I don't get on with this book, then I'm going to abandon the series.
  13. Your Book Activity - July 2017

    Having read a little bit more today, I think things are starting to fit into place.......a bit.
  14. Your Book Activity - July 2017

    I've also read two Picoult books this and 'The Tenth Circle' and both started well and ended in a disapponting way. I've got another book by Jodi Picoult sitting in my book case, but now I'm not sure if I dare read it. I'm about halfway through 'The Gunslinger' by Stephen King and I just can't seem to get on with it. There are moments I find interesting, but I haven't managed to get into it.
  15. Your Book Activity - July 2017

    I was so disappointed by the ending, I wanted to throw the book off my balcony!
  16. Your Book Activity - July 2017

    Just finished this and I got used to the separate character chapters in the end, I thought it was an interesting way to tell the story. However, the ending left me feeling extremely cheated.
  17. Your Book Activity - July 2017

    I've just finished 'My Sister's Keeper' by Jodi Picoult. In general, I think this is an interesting read, but I felt extremely cheated by the ending. Once my Kindle has charged, I'm going to start reading 'The Gunslinger' by Stephen King, the first in his 'Dark Tower' series.
  18. Read-a-thon - 2017

    I never seem to read more than the same number of books read every year, so the challenge is never met. I should push myself a bit, but not to the point that I don't enjoy reading anything.
  19. Your Book Activity - July 2017

    I'm still reading this, I have been too busy to read over the last few days. I'm enjoying it though. The multiple character chapters are a little confusing at times though.
  20. Doctor Who Series 10 + New Doctor?

    I agree, gender shouldn't matter. Jodie Whittaker has proven herself to be a great actress in things like 'Broadchurch', so I think she should be given a chance. As someone was saying earlier in the thread, it takes guts to make the decision to take on the role being the first female Doctor, because of potential negative reaction she might get by some fans but I think going against the tradition of having a male Doctor, is a good thing. It'll definitely be interesting viewing. I do wonder now if Bill is going to come back. Could a female Doctor mean the introduction of a male companion? In general don't care about the gender of the companion either, but I really hope the writers bring back Bill. She's the best companion the programme has had, since Rose Tyler in my opinion.
  21. Your Book Activity - July 2017

    Yesterday I finished 'Billy and Me' by Giovanna Fletcher and I have to say, it wasn't as predictable as I had first though. I don't usually read this type of book, but I enjoyed it. I would like to read more of Giovanna Fletcher's books in the future. Now, I'm about 55 pages into 'My Sister's Keeper' by Jodi Picoult. So far, it's good.
