      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.

Hello! I grew up in a house which was wallpapered with bookshelves, and used to devour them regularly - different genres, styles, quality. But then I somehow grew out of the habit. I still read a bit, and still wrote a few things myself, but nowhere near as much as I used to.


Recently, especially with the Coronavirus lockdowns, I've found myself reading more- and even setting up a YouTube channel for reading out-of-copyright stories (haven't had the confidence to put up my own!) This has reminded me how much I love reading, and I've made a conscious decision to get back into it as much as I can.


Hence my finding and joining this forum! 


I hope to hear about and share in people's enthusiasm for books of all kinds!

Hi Ianto, welcome to the forum! It's great that you've started to get back into reading. What have you been reading recently?

Thanks! Most recently a sudden glut of "classic" (ie oldandthusoutofprint) horror authors (for a halloween playlist) - nothing wrong with reading a good few stories by Poe or M. R. James, but H. P. Lovecraft can be someone you can have a surfeit of more quickly! Outside that, I was going through some of the books my partner has - sailed through her Mervyn Peake's "Titus" books, and am now finally getting round to reading Milan Kundera's "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" which she has been recommending to me for far too long! Getting through a few books from my ancient Sci-fi and fantasy selection, and finding that Fritz Lieber no longer holds me as he did once, but finding new books in my partner's collection which do, so that's a fair swap! (Also a few Welsh language books, but that would be for another forum!)
