      Late Autumn Supporter Giveaway   11/27/2020

      I know that winter is well on the way, but I'm sneaking the autumn giveaway in here, right at the end of the season...     I thought this giveaway seemed particularly appropriate for this year: Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books by Cathy Rentzenbrink.  I'm sure some of you will have heard of this book. It came out in September and has had brilliant reviews. It's been described as a love letter to reading and I think all of us have truly appreciated 'the comfort and joy of books' this year.  It is also a really beautiful hardback. Please excuse my picture-taking skills, it's really hard to get a good picture of something that's shiny!   As always, patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the draw. If you're not a supporter but you'd like to join our patreon you can do so here:  bookclubforum.co.uk is creating a book community | Patreon

A book a read as a child

Recommended Posts

Hi, can anybody help me with the name and author of a book I once read as a child and now cannot remember. The book follows the happenings of a young boy, the book from memory was set in England in the 60’s/70’s. In one part of the book, the boy climbs the school clock/bell tower while at school and inscribes his name into the brickwork, to which I believe he saw that his father had done the very same thing when he was a child. I hope this can be named as I have wracked by brain for several years now, I am now 30 and believe this was read when I was possibly 10. 

Any help is appreciated

I dunno.

Yet there are many such queries in the course of a year, just similar to yours.

Usually the person doesn't log in again 

Never understood that.
