Sharing Beyond Books #166 Comment Giveaway August 30, 2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
I had a strange, rare day today. I stayed home in the morning to do bed sheets and some cleaning. Then I got on the computer doing organization and I never left the house. :-/

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Seven people clean pretty much as they go, almost daily. Another six people clean about twice a week. Then there are a few who clean for company -- I relate to that. Ten people do spring, fall or big project cleaning... or at least plan to. I can relate to that too. :-)

The Winner from SBB #165 comments is: #7 Fredamans 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 #166 (One Question.)

Q1. My question (for week 5 this month): Do you use the "snooze" feature on your alarm??
A: I use my cell phone as my alarm and I LOVE my snooze feature. My normal routine is: Five minutes early very gentle music, like a stream gurgling, comes on; then five minutes later a rooster crows. I also have a second time set for fifteen minutes later that I use sometimes. Then I rise up pretty cheerfully. My DH hates the snooze! He says "Just set it for the time you want to get up." Fortunately he has gotten used to my routine.

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. My Question: Do you use the "snooze" on your alarm??

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:

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 September 6, 2014 at 5 PM  central.


  1. No I don't use a snooze button on the alarm. I do not even use an alarm.

  2. Yes, I use the "snooze" on my alarm. I use it either once or at least three times before I get up during the week. I don't use it on the weekends unless I am working.

  3. I actually don't use an alarm clock, my son wakes me up early every morning. On those rare occasions when I use one, I hit snooze several times, probably because I'm not used to having an alarm.

  4. I have an old wind up alarm clock - no snooze function - just raucous ringing.

  5. I never use the snooze button - I'm a morning person and get right out of bed

  6. ^^;; i don't think my alram clock even has one so i don't use it but recently i discoverered that i was getting around teh same hour even when i didn't plan to because i know i need to give my dog his medecine and i got used ro the time^^;;

  7. Congrats to Freda on her win.

    I do not have a snooze on my alarm clock.

  8. I set my alarm every day but I normally wake up long before it goes off. On the days I need to get up at an earlier time, however, I will use the snooze button once or twice but I allow for that mentally.

  9. Thanks for the great win, I filled in the form! :-)

    I never hit the snooze. When I hear the alarm, I always jump out of bed like a Pop Tart.

  10. I have my alarm clock way across the room so that I have to get out of bed to turn it off---and not be tempted to hit the snooze button.

  11. Congrats Freda!

    I don't use an alarm.

  12. I'm a snooze button abuser. Especially on weekends. Guilty. Very guilty.
