Sharing Beyond Books #153 Comment Giveaway May 31, 2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
It's late...I almost posted that I was taking a break this week as I am tired. Then I decided to push on through. :-)
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Listing the choices of snacks in my spreadsheet did make me hungry but it is too late to eat. I think I liked all the choices but I had to look up Mystica's sweet choice of mysore pak - sounds good. Sarah's entry of cajun nuts reminded me that I bought some cajun notes for our son-in-law who loves all things hot!
The Winner from SBB #152 comments is: #14 Natasha 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 #153 (One Question.)

Q1. My question for week 5 and since it is almost summertime: Do you have a beach bag? What's in it? Anything surprising??
A: I am not a big beach goer especially since we have a pool (which I did get in last weekend). I do have a couple of beach bags which my daughter uses more than me. Whether I go by the pool or to the beach I will have basics: old shoes, towel, book or kindle (of course) and water to drink. I know I should have sun screen but I only last about 10 - 15 minutes in the sun anyway so I tend to forget the sunscreen. Also, I do not have any sunglasses and I need a new floppy hat. :-)
I just saw a great bag that includes a cooler at the site with this image.

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 still have a supply of questions but from the same people so hopefully others will send more in -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify to use. 
Our four contributors for May were: Mary P, Nikki, Miki and Elizabeth. chose # 3 so Miki gets a GC.

Your turn to share:

  1. a beach bag? i never go to the beach so i would answer no. i do have a swimming bag though that hold the swimsuit and hair cap in case i do somewhere whith a pool but it has been years since i went so i dont even know where i put it^^;;

    thank you a lot!

  2. No, I don't have a beach bag. I usually just use any old bag that's convenient.

  3. No, I don't own a beach bag. I don't go to a beach that often to justify owning a beach bag,

  4. I have several beach bags that I typically only use when we go on vacation or cruises. We have a pool so I have all the beach supplies handy and stocked including lots of towels since it's amazing how many kids come over to swim and don't bring a towel, sunscreen, floats etc.

  5. I don't have a beach bag these days I just use whatever is to hand. When I was a child I did. It had a mermaid picture on it. I mostly used it for swimming lessons at the pool though.

  6. No beach bag here, no beach to go to. By the time we would get to one, we would have to come home.

  7. No beach bag here. I don't go swimming anymore since I've gained so much weight---I probably should since it would help me lose some maybe.

  8. Yes, I have a beach bag with my sunglasses, lip gloss, sunscreen, towel, plenty of books, etc. And I even used it this weekend at the beach. :)

  9. tho I only get to the beach maybe once a year I do have one - I keep my swimsuits, water shoes, sun hat, etc in it so everything is together.

  10. No I don't. We rarely go to the beach. But I do have a beach-y tote I use for shopping!
