Sharing Beyond Books #163 Comment Giveaway August 9, 2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
We had a nice visit with family and friends by the pool early in the day. Then again for dinner after I came back from work. I'm tired now and heading to bed shortly.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
We are equally split on using the library. Seven of us do not use the library, several mentioned because it was so small and limited. The other seven love the library and are happy to get to use it. .

The Winner from SBB #162 comments is: #6 Marjorie 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 #163 (One Question.)

Q1. Elizabeth asks (from August 2013): When do schools start again in your country??
A: Our schools are starting this Friday and next Monday. I think my three grandchildren who live here are looking forward to it - mostly. :-)
I like that READ is prominent in this sign.

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:

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 August 16, 2014 at 5 PM  central.
