Well - it is close enough now to wish everyone a very
and Blessed holiday week!
Thank you to all who shared last week.
Actually about half of commenters do not get up early to read... mostly because many of you stay up really late to read! LOL And I do appreciate the need to watch the clock in the morning, like Di, so you don't get the kids up late, like Jolene.
Most of us do give donations year around. I like nrlymrtl's idea of getting local crafts as gifts.
The Winner from SBB #78 comments is: #9 Jolene. There are still 5 'love' books to pick from and new Christmas choices. Jolene please choose a book (or GC if international) from the remaining five Love Books List for Giveaway, the new Christmas Giveaway Book list, OR pick from the Updated ARC/Review List and let me know your choice, your address and a choice of bookmarks by completing the WINNER FORM.
WEEK #79 Questions
Q1. Marjorie asks a book question: I bought a kindle and I enjoy it, however, I would rather have a good old book in my hand anytime. How do you feel about using an ebook.??
I think we have touched on this discussion before and it is timely since some of you may be planning/hoping on getting an ereader as a gift.*grin*
I have now had my Kindle (the old 2nd generation) since 2009. As much as I still like 'real' paperback books, I think I am doing a greater portion of reading on the Kindle (or listening with my MP3). Even the print books I receive I often end up purchasing on Amazon as I can read the books faster, with the Kindle reading to me while I do those menial, but necessary tasks, like putting on make-up, folding laundry etc. :-) I also have my tablet but haven't started reading on that yet.

Q2. My holiday related question this week: Do you have a gift you HOPE to get or a special gift that you are giving this year??
A: I'm not anticipating anything special... our cruise and Hawaii visit are our Christmas present to ourselves. We left a check and gifts back home and have a check for our son and d-i-l. We did buy a special surprise gift for them on the cruise but I can't say what it is in case my son should look at the blog.:-) .DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I draw from the suggestions I used during the month and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions. Thanks for sending in questions! We can always use fresh questions.
