Sharing Beyond Books #94 Comment Giveaway April 6, 2013

Hello, Welcome to SBB.

Our weather is still on the cool side but there are lots of signs of spring in the air -- especially pollen!

Thank you to all who shared last week.

I loved the different childhood books that were shared. Nancy Drew got four mentions and Enid Blyton got three. I had to look up Enid Blyton and those look like great books for kids. The Little House series also got several mentions. I had almost forgotten the Dick and Jane books mentioned by Carol L! And nrlymrtl picked the Choose Your Own Adventure books. I really loved those too but they were books I purchased for my kids. :-)

Interestingly, the items mentioned purchased most for the Easter weekend were chocolate and books. Commentors purchased items for others more than themselves. Several had Easter dinners or breakfast.

The Winner from SBB #93 comments is: #8 nrlymrtl, who can make a book choice from the ARC/Review titles, Christmas titles or Love titles - all linked near the end of the post. Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.

WEEK #94 Questions

Q1. Abby asks: Do you exercise??
A: We-eelll. I try to exercise and need to do more! I use a stationary bicycle for up to half an hour two to three times a week -- when I am being good. During spring to fall months I fast walk 2 miles if I get into the practice of it. During the summer I try to swim about once a week. I like to listen to audiobooks while doing walking or cycling and often wish I could think of a way to listen while swimming!

Q2. My bookish Question this week: Do you look at/post/like cover reveals??
A: I barely have time to post and look at memes and book reviews. I just don't have time to post or visit on cover reveals. However sometimes it is fun when authors show alternative covers.  
.
Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. 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.
I forgot last week to announce the Question Contributor winner for March: Those whose questions were used were: MaryP, nrlymrtl, Becky, Carol L and Emily.  Random.org picked #5 so Emily gets a book pick or GC.

  1. I should exercise, but don't. No excuses except I don't have enough motivation.

    I like posting and seeing cover reveals. They are simple to post, and fun to read.

  2. Easy week...
    No to both questions.

  3. 1. Excuse me while I look up the word "exercise" in my dictionary ... *gulps in shock* I would NEVER do such a horrible thing!? Joking aside, I'm really not into sports. At all. I do walk a lot, but I guess that's generally a European thing with small distances and all.

    2. I don't care for cover reveals at all, especially when some book covers are suddenly all over the blogosphere at the same time.

  4. 1. I usually walk on a treadmill, as well as swim in the sea...sometimes a swimming pool. :)

    2. I don't post cover reveals, but I read other blogs that do so.

  5. 1. My exercise is a daily walk with my hubby!.

    2. Except for that compare covers between the U.S. and the U.K., I skip reading cover reveals.

  6. 1. I do Zumba 2-3 times a week (twice a week in class, once a week on the Wii), and yogo 1-2 times a week. I also do a bit a strength a few times a week and love walking my dog.
    2. I like looking at cover reveals, but I don't actively seek them out or post them myself.

  7. Q1: I don't exercise like I did when I was younger and lived near my mom. I used to go for walks almost every night. Now the only exercise I get is at work depending if I'm walking from one area to another area and back.
    Q2: I love seeing the cover reveals and reading if the author like it themselves or if had any say in how the cover will look.

  9. First, thank you! This is my second win on your blog. Hooray!

    I try to exercise and when I am in the habit, I enjoy it. But since ankle surgery in Feb. I have not been in the habit. Naughty me.

    I don't pay too much attention to cover reveals, but I do like seeing alternative covers - especially foreign covers. Very interesting what appeals where.

    2. I will occasionally look at them but they don't influence my purchases.

    Q2. I do look at them. Sometimes just out of curiosity. But I don't post them. I can't keep up!

    ReplyDelete
  20. 1 - not much - I used to go to the local Curves, but stopped going & then it closed
    2 - I look at them & take note if it's a favorite author
