Sharing Beyond Books #2

Sharing Beyond Books or SBB won the votes last week by 18 to 4 so that remains the name for this 'event.'
Amy asked if this was a Meme.   If several people want to do it as a meme I will set up a linky.  For now, if you do a post with the questions add your link and I, and hopefully others, will come to visit!

It was an interesting split on reading multiple books at one time.  At least eight of you only read one book at a time and another seven read only one or two.  Seven of us read in the three to six range.  Then you have the incredible readers, Ricki and Jennifer who read 12 at a time! Whew!  I have to agree with Maria D. that I have to be careful not to read the same genre as that does get confusing. Last week I had two demon books and I had to finish one before I started the other.

I enjoyed reading about your favorite vacation sites and now I know who to contact if I get to go to some of these historic places I would love to visit like Williamsburg (Maria D.'s choice).  Lieder and Amy mentioned Washington which I'd like to visit someday too.  Birgit's park with an ice cream parlor sounds perfect for a summer visit! Carol L do you love Erin Hilderbrand books set in Nantucket vicinity? Brednabh is close enough that she and I will have to plan a Destin book day! Whoo Hoo!

The Winner from last week's comments is: #12 LOUISA.  There are still 11 'love' books to pick from and 9 Christmas choices. So Louisa - please choose a book from the remaining Love Books List for Giveaway or remaining Christmas Giveaway Books and let me know your choice, your address and a choice of bookmarks by completing the WINNER FORM.

WEEK #2 Questions
Q1.  Do you have an eReader or read eBooks?
You all probably know by now that I do have a Kindle and I love it! I even like to listen to the text to speech. (I wish my nails were as nice as this ladies. *g*)  I also love getting all those free Kindle downloads although I have only read a handful.
I have to admit that I do not enjoy reading on the computer. It seems to take me twice as long to read my books for editing - of course that could be because I have to be picky and precise about copy edits.

Q2. Share your favorite summer sport.
 It should come as no surprise that my favorite summer sport is swimming!  I am up to 30 laps at least three times a week now and it feels so good to get that exercise. I rotate strokes but I don't do butterfly, which I never was very good at. In high school I used to race distances, relays and backstroke. I am also a fabulous floater and after the laps I just float as still as I can be for about five minutes......ahhhhhh!

Q3. Tell us the capital city of your state (or country if you don't have a state capital) and have you ever visited there? 

I visited Tallahassee, our state capital just last week.  I had to cover a court hearing there for another law firm. It was my first time there and I was directed to parking that ended up three blocks away. Does anyone want to see the pictures of the blisters I got? Ugh!

DON'T FORGET any of you might have good questions you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this  Suggested Question Form(Birgit I know you have some because I saw a few good questions at your blog and have noted them for use if you don't suggest them. LOL) At the beginning of each month I will draw from the suggestions I used the month before and that person will get a book choice or GC.

Your turn to share: 
1.  Do you have an eReader and/or do you read eBooks?
2.  What is your favorite summer sport?
3.  What is your capital city and have you visited there?

SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the remaining  Valentine and "Love" books or the remaining Christmas Giveaway Books - there are still about 19 books available to choose from. I'll start pulling some other books to add soon.
Rules: a) Must be a follower; b) Share a comment on any (or all) of the three questions above.
Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.
I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made by Friday, July 1 at 10PM central.
