Sharing Beyond Books #4; July 9, 2011

Thanks again for all your comments! Although the genre choice were varied mysteries did get mentioned by 10 people! That sort of surprises me but it's good.

It looks like two of you, Mystica and Mary, are experiencing winter but most of us are coping with heat. Linda gets lots of heat and little rain... I don't think of California being that dry.

I must not have been clear as I meant book quotes you liked, not necessarily your favorite quotes! However the quotes given were great!  I can relate to fading memories so I jot down book quotes as I am reading. :o)

The Winner from last week's comments is: #5 Mary P.  There are still 9 'love' books to pick from, 8 Christmas choices and 6 Summer titles below. So Mary - 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 #4 Questions
Q1. Do you listen to music while reading?  What type of music?
I hardly ever listen to music. Even in the car I am more apt to be listening to an Audio book. About the only time I do listen to music is when we have a new choir book and I listen to learn my alto part.

Q2. What is your state (or Country's) bird or flower?
Florida's bird is the mockingbird and the flower is the orange blossom.

Q3. Now here is the first question from the suggestion list. Jennifer C asks: What five books would you wish to have with you on a deserted island?  eReaders do not count...LOL
#1 is very easy for me - The Bible
There rest were more difficult!
#2 Girl Gone Nova by Pauline Baird Jones
#3 Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
#4 A Survival Guide - okay I'm on a deserted island I figure I may need help!
#5 This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti
Then I would hope I am not on the island long because what would I do without a computer and more books??!??

I am getting some question suggestions now. Thanks! 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. 

Your turn to share: 
1.  Do you listen to music while you read?
2.  What is state/country bird and/or flower?
3.  What five books would you want on a desert island?
