      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

8. Frankie: Back to the King theme, but I really had to recommend The Running Man by Richard Bachman. If you've ever seen the film version with Arnie, be prepared to wonder what the hell they were thinking when they adapted it, as this version is so so much better (imo, of course :) ). 

 

Great choice, I think it's a book that I wouldn't have gone for myself and now I will pick it up sooner rather than later! :D   I've seen bits of the movie and it's... outstanding :D

@frankie: I'm going to go with Sebastian Faulks' Birdsong but if it has already been suggested, Human Traces. (I'll read too, in that case.)

 

Birdsong it is then! :smile2:   

 

I'm sorry I'm so late with this, but my challenge to you is HHhH by Laurent Binet! I was happy to see the book on your TBR list, I hope you will enjoy it, as I hope to do so myself when I get a chance to read it! It's on my TBR list, too! :)

 Frankie:  The Opposite of fate - Amy Tan  - One of my favourite authors, and a book I gave as presents a few years ago. :)

 

Sorry for the mixed up quote block! I can't figure out how to make it right... :unsure: In any case, thanks Little Pixie for this suggestion! I started reading this book ages ago and really loved what I read but never managed to finish! I'm looking forward to reading it now! :smile2:
