Sharing Beyond Books #3

Thanks for the comments! It is interesting that most of us do have eReaders and the largest number, 6, goes to Kindle owners. I will have to find out more about Ricki's Cruz Tablet. I bought a pc tablet last year which I had planned to use for editing. I wanted to have hand writing recognition but I the program did one letter at a time...I can type faster than that! I may break down and get an IPAD the next time I get a big fee.

Five of us like swimming and tubing is a water sport. :-) Two moms are busy with little league and the other's are varied. Birgit...I don't think eating ice cream qualifies as a sport though it is a grand summer activity! LOL. Dollycas' choice is different - NASCAR racing!

I enjoyed learning your capitals and it was funny that tooncesmom and Linda K commented one after another and they are in the same state although it sounds like they are at different ends.

The Winner from last week's comments is: #5 scottsgal. (I would like to visit the home of Abraham Lincoln!) There are still 9 'love' books to pick from and 9 Christmas choices. So scottsgal - 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 #3 Questions
 
Q1. Do you have a favorite genre? Well if you are like me it is hard to pick one so let's pick top 3!
I read a variety of genres but I think that historical romance is still my #1 favorite. Maybe because I still prefer the sensual romance more than the sexual romance which seems more common in the contemporary tale. #2 is now is Dystopia/Steampunk and #3 Romantic Suspense
Here's an interesting site for old romance book covers!

Q2. I know we shared our temperatures in December...so now it is time to share our June temperatures.
We have had a hot month. The High today was 100°F and the low is to be 73°F.  The current temperature on our porch has cooled to 80°F as we are having a thunder storm but that is okay because Florida desperately needs rain!

Q3. Because I have been wanting to share some book quotes - lets each share a favorite quote today.

This one is from Ceremony in Death by  J.D. Robb:
Eve Dallas meets a lawyer for a suspect she is interviewing and recognizes her from a ceremony she observed.
A lawyer witch, she mused. And wondered if that would be considered a redundancy.
Okay - it was a lawyer joke so it got my attention. :-)
Ceremony in Death

DON'T FORGET any of you might have good questions you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this  Suggested Question FormAt 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. 
No one made any suggestions in June so there is no book winner from June.

Your turn to share: 
1.  What are your top 3 favorite genres?
2.  What is your current temperature?
3.  Do you have a quote to share??
