      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.

Haha that's not nice she does that :doh:. Our goats do the same thing, they do inside their house just to do their business. It would be a lot easier if they just did it outside.

 

Is it a privacy issue ?  :giggle2:  Xiao-Xiao used to go outside, but then had to be kept in for a week when she had an abscess operation and had to wear a bonnet from the vet ; I think she realised then how convenient and clean the house kitty loos were.

Beautiful little calico!  I love the way she is sitting with her paws crossed.  My Twinkletoes does exactly the same.  :)

 

It's always fun to start a new series by a reliable author.  Yay! :D

 

How is Twinkletoes, and the other cat ?   :D

 

I was thinking last night about book series, and how many I`m following, and came up with...

 

Inspector Brunetti - Donna Leon

 

Mrs Murphy,  Sister Jane - Rita Mae Brown

 

Meg Langslow - Donna Andrews

 

Inspector Gamache -  Louise Penny

 

Gabriel Allon -  Daniel Silva

 

Thursday Next - Jasper Fforde ( and all his other books )

 

Passport to Peril - Maddy Hunter

 

Rei Shimura - Sujata Massey

 

I`m also still reading Aunt Dimity, Mary Russell, Hannah Swensen, but not quite as fanatically as before.  :smile:

 

Out of print now, but I`m also reading the Inspector Heimrich,  and Nathan Shapiro books by Frances and Richard Lockridge ( and also have two of the wonderful Mr and Mrs North books to read ).

Twinkletoes and Goldy are fine, lazy and adorable as ever.   :D

 

When I was sick, Goldy stayed in bed with me the whole time.  Would hardly leave my side.  He is such a little love.

 

That is a lot of series!  I'm going to have start a list of the series I do, and have followed in the past.  Yikes.

Charity shop books - Ghostwritten ( David Mitchell ), The Believers ( Zoe Heller ) and Hiding from the Light ( Barbara Erskine ) - all for £3.75 :)

 

I went to cheer myself up with books after seeing the chiropodist ( I needed 3/4 of my big toenails removed `cos of infection ; hopefully, I`ll be able to stop the antibiotics soon - I`ve been taking them since December ). My toes look a bit scary now, but I`m sure they`ll fell better soon. :)

Sarah, I hope you enjoy your new books :)!

 

I hope your toes feel better soon :flowers2:

 

Thank you and thank you !  :D

 

11 books arrived today in the post from the US, which has made me very cheerful ( there may have been an ` I`ve got books Happy Dance` ;)  ).

I rotated the pics so they were readable, but the photos have reverted - and have a blue tinge when I enlarge them.  :doh:

 

EDIT - blue tinge has now gone, but pics still need some head turning to read the titles - or movement of the monitor.  ;)

I`m pleased with the out-of-print books ; some of them have library stickers from Fresno, Oneonta, Lambton, and some have personal library stickers inside. I do like the idea of my books having been on a journey.  :D
