Sharing Beyond Books #155 Comment Giveaway June 14, 2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
I did relax a little today so I'm not quite so tired.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Almost everyone had a different, wonderful author they would like to 'work' with! Neil Gaiman was the only one who was named twice.
The Winner from SBB #154 comments is: #3 Ricki 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 #155 (One Question.)

Q1. Lisa C asks: Apart from ereading, do you have any apps that you depend on??
A: I have to admit that "apps" are still a bit of a puzzle for me. As well as I know my regular computer it just doesn't seem so natural on the phone or tablet. We do use Skype, Facebook and Dropbox - if those are considered apps. And I imagine when we travel in the motorhome I will probably use some type of weather and GPS app. We do have a GPS for the car. We do not pay (extra) for internet on our phones so we don't do a lot of things on the phone.
Working with apps is still a puzzle to a lot of people, including me.

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. 

Your turn to share:

Q1. Lisa asks: Apart from ereading, do you have any apps that you depend on??

SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the Valentine and "Love" books, the Christmas Giveaway Books (this is the new link), or the June 2013 Newly Updated ARC/Review List.

SBB Rules:
a) Must be a follower.
b) Share a comment on either of the two questions above.
Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.

I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made through Saturday June 21, 2014 at 5 PM  central.


  1. So once I had to delete a bunch of apps because my phone was having memory issues, and I discovered that I cannot live without IMDB and Shazam. I also heavily rely upon Instagram, Overdrive Media (listing it here because I use it for audio books, not ebooks), My Fitness Pal, and Meetup.

  2. Not big e-reader fan. Give me a physical book any day.

  3. I frequently use several apps, such as Goodreads, Facebook, etc.

  4. I use the Kindle Ap on the Ipad and also skype and FB aps on ipad.

  5. I don't use any apps - no mobile phone & happy to keep it that way.

  6. Disney has a great app that we use when we go there that tells the ride wait times

  7. My smart phone is still a big mystery to me---I only make calls, take photos, and make an occasional text.

  8. i have no ereader , no smartphone so i don't use any applications not sure a lot are available here either anyway

  9. No, too confusing!!

  10. Really now. I typed up my answer on my phone but looks like it never went through.

    I rely on quite a few apps. I use Facebook to keep in touch with other family members, GoodReads for books, there are a few shopping apps that I use now and then to compare prices and look for deals.

  11. Goodreads, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter are all apps I use daily on my iphone.

  12. Not really...there are several like Facebook, twitter and goodreads that I use pretty frequently but not any that I can't also use on my computer.


Your comments are always appreciated!
