      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

Isn’t it!? Which one did you get? 

I feel like I’m never going to get the cafe one. And I’m totally confused about the zombie! Plus all I think when I look at the cereal clue is ‘cereal killer’ (which is not, sadly, the answer!)

The one with 3 (possible) related females. I looked at that damn illustration last night, and I still have no idea any the wiser! :10_confused:

The cafė is another one that is totally baffling, and it didn’t help when I had Googled for the name of funiculi funicula either.

National Book Tokens posted some clues on twitter. I'll put them in spoiler quotes just in case someone doesn't want any clues but they're still hard!

 

The cafe:

Spoiler

In a small back alley in Tokyo,

A warm beverage can be yours for an 

amount of dough.

Time goes by quickly, to some degree

But only with a darker poison (not tea).

 

 

The flowers:

Spoiler

This tale is about two Afghanistan

women,

And the challenging times that they live

in,

To make this a little bit more easy,

The title of this book is found in a poem by Saib Tabrizi.

 

 

The 'zombie'

Spoiler

What unites Frankenstein and Loch Ness?

And potentially this author's name no less,

This book has found success as a theatrical production,

Its subject matter focussing on losing a loved one.

 

The dog

Spoiler

Not to be confused with out head of state,

Although this young woman also has a lot on her plate,

South West London is her home,

This book has been likened as a contemporary Bridget Jones.

 

The bees

Spoiler

A maker of honey,

Plus the opposite of hate,

A pioneering author adored by many,

Themes of civil rights and community are centre stage.

 

 

Even after the extra clues I have absolutely no idea what the cafe, zombie or bees are representing!

I got the zombie one after the clue, but I would never had got it just with the painting! 

 

And after the clue for the café, I think I have even less chance of working this one out :lol:
