      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

I wish you happy reading in 2016, Sarah :readingtwo::D!!

 

Wow, Ngaio Marsh has written a lot of books. You must like her work to read so many of them :).

Happy reading, Little Pixie! That's quite a TBR pile! I love that you've added two extra posts for future TBR books. You mustn't be hoping/expecting to curb your book buying this year.  :giggle:

Thank you !  :D It`s nice to be almost up to date - I just need to do my best books of 2015 now.  :smile: 

 

Ngaio Marsh`s Inspector Alleyn mysteries were my pick for the start-of-the-year-get-over-the-Winter-blahs reread ;  it`s been 20 years since I read them and was nice to get back to `old friends`. Particular favourites are Death and the Dancing Footman ( a blizzard traps a group of people - and a murderer - in a country house ) and Clutch of Constables ( Troy , the Inspector`s wife, decides to go on a riverboat cruise of Norfolk, and someone gets bumped off ).  :smile:

I decided to not make myself miserable by attempting to change my book-addicted personality.  :giggle2:

What a lot of books you've read already.  :)   I've been intending to read a Ngaio Marsh book for some time - maybe 2016 will be that year?

 

Happy reading.  :)

We`ll see ; perhaps I`ll be on the News getting rescued from a Book Hoard.  :giggle2:

 

Hah, don't let Marie Kondo get ya!! :giggle:

 

Happy Reading! :balloons:

Happy Reading in 2016 Little Pixie :) I say, you've read an awful lot of Ngaio Marsh's :D 

 

Thanks ! I did enjoy my Ngaio Marsh reread ; you just keep reading `em in order and you don`t have to think about picking out a book to read next. I`ve just got her collected short stories to go and then comes the hard part - picking out a book to read from my 804 book TBR. Aaaaack ! :doh:

Thanks ! If you`ve read Dorothy L Sayers, then Inspector Alleyn is quite similar ( though he doesn`t go the full Wimsey  ;) ).
