Sharing Beyond Books #121 Coment Giveaway October 12, 2013

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to SBB, Sharing Beyond Books.

Hey everyone!  I hope fall is going well for everyone so far -- or spring for those Down Under!

Ten of us go to the clearance or bargain table in the bookstore first. Four go to New Releases, two to special display tables, two to Magna and then there are various special interests or simply browsers. 

There were two who refused to choose between Doctor or Dentists and a couple others who said neither but if they had to choose... The results are 15 chose Doctor over 4 for Dentist.

Thank you to all who shared last week.
The Winner from SBB #120 comments is: #22 Nikki (I think you've had a winning week!) who can make a GC choice if international or 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 (new) WINNER FORM.

WEEK #121

Q1. ElizabethL asks: What is your favorite autumn tradition??
A: I think Thanksgiving is included in autumn, so that is my favorite autumn 'tradition.' I love giving thanks!
Isn't this a gorgeous shot?

Q2. My nonbookish Question this week: Which are you? Multi-tasker or single tasker??
A: I definitely qualify as a multi-tasker. It is hard for me to do only one thing especially when not at work. At work I have to focus on one project or case at a time although there are interruptions and I cover several projects a day. Even in Court I am following my notes but also assessing witnesses and the judge's reaction. I don't do jury trials and if I did I would want a team, not do it by myself. At home - I work on the computer while watching TV; I listen to audios while doing chores, even while putting on make-up etc.

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 are getting low on questions so hopefully you will send more in -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify to use.

Your turn to share:

  1. 1. No tradition.

    2. Multi tasker.

  2. ^^ Yes really lucky week Nikki i'm so happy for you^^

    thank you for your generosity once again Martha

    so my answer:
    fall tradition: we don't really have any in my country that i can think of but i'm coming to enjoy the idea of thanksgiving ( taking the time to be grateful and says thanks is important for me)

    2) i guess multi taskers ( except when it come to reading, when i read nothing else exist)


  3. 1. Autumn is the start of college football which we're huge fans of. Love the crisp smell in the air, cooler weather and colors of fall.

    2. definitely a multi-tasker. I'm the executive assistant to the president of a large mfg company so no day is ever the same and I'm involved in so many projects it's ridiculous from legal to environment to HR to event planning I wear many hats.

  4. 1. My husband and I go on a drive every October to look at leaves.
    2. Totally depends on the tasks.

  5. Q1: My favorite autumn tradition is going and seeing how the leaves are beautifully colored for the year. There are certain roads in my area you can take and see the colorful fall leaves of the trees. Besides that it would be celebrating Halloween and Thanksgiving.
    Q2: I am a Multi-tasker. I am always doing more than one thing even at work. The only time I am doing a single tasker would be when I am reading a book unless I'm watching tv then if something interesting come on I stop reading and watch it.

  6. 1. I live in the tropics & don't experience autumn.
    2. Single tasker. I can multi task but only if I don't need to concentrate too much on any of the things I'm doing.

  7. 1. Thanksgiving

    2. Multi-tasker, definately

  8. 1 - I've got to go with Thanksgiving too because the family gets together, but I do enjoy seeing the kids in costume at Halloween (tho due to storms the last two years our Halloween was cancelled - here's to a better Halloween this year)
    2 - Multi-Tasker - I've always got multiple projects in process

  9. My favorite autumn tradition is going to apple orchards.

    I am a multi-tasker. Seems like I always have at least a couple of things going on at once.


  10. Congrats Nikki!

    1) Fave tradition is Thanksgiving dinners at my family and my in-laws. Two days of non-stop food, fun and follies!!
    2) Multi-tasker. I am a mom after all.

    I'm in Canada, entering for a GC.

  11. 1. One of my favorite autumn traditions is attending fall festivals. :)

    2. I tend to be a multi-tasker.

  12. Q1. My favorite autumn tradition is eating everything pumpkin! I love the drinks, the food, even the scent of pumpkin. Yum yum!

    Q2.I am a multi-tasker, though I'm not sure I do it very well lol.

  13. Congrats to Nikki.
    I too love Thanksgiving.Giving thanks and sharing are wonderful feelings.I also love the change in the weather .

    When my 7 kids were home I was always a multi - tasker.
    Now they have their own families and only the youngest is home and I no longer have to multi - task. But if it comes up I definitely am more of the multi - tasker personality and will deal with it.

  14. 1. don't have one
    2. multi-tasker

  15. 1. My favorite Autumn tradition would actually be stocking up the cupboards & freezer in preparation for Winter. I must be part squirrel.

    2. I am most definitely a multi-tasker. The only way to get everything done.

  16. Well, where I live there's only summer and winter.. I can't get to see autumn. But I'd love to, someday. I guess thanksgiving would be a great tradition to keep, but I don't have it. :(

    I think it depends on what I'm doing, because If I read, I have to concentrate on the book, no music or I'll be distracted by the music. I can work on several things, though. Like tasks at home.. cleaning, watching TV and washing clothes is something I usually do, lol.

  17. I love seeing the leaves change colour. There isn't as much of that here in BC as in Ontario, but we now have a new tradition to go see the salmon spawning.

    I am a definite multi-tasker.

  18. We usually call it fall here in fl. We also dont have much scenery changrs but I like to think of the leaves falling off tress and the kids making piles to jump in.

    I can multi task if it is necessary, but i would much rather work on one project until that is finished and then start on the next thing. My work is therefore focused and correct. Then i am ready to start again.

  19. 1. I love decorating the house for Autumn and Halloween.
    2. I am a multi-tasker.

  20. Not entering for this week since last week was a double win for me. Thanks lots Martha! Very cool and unexpected.

    Hope you got my form!

    Good luck this week everyone!
