Sharing Beyond Books #169 Comment Giveaway September 20, 2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
And -- another week bites the dust! I had a nice half day with the grandkids and friends. They came over to help "pick up sticks" from the yard and we helped P-Pop clean the garage too. It was very productive.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
We are pretty much split on the amount of time we spend on the computer. Nine of us spend about 8 to 10 hours a day while seven spend 2 to 4 hours on the computer each day. A couple of you share the computer with other family members so that impacts the amount of time they spend.

The Winner from SBB #168 comments is: #7 Nicole 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 #169 (One Question.)

Q1. Jess1 asks: Is there a food that you were always indifferent to for many years, but later ended up liking a lot??
A: As I child I never liked cottage cheese, in fact it made me gag. But now I like it, particularly with fruit.

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. Jess1 asks: Is there a food that you were always indifferent to for many years, but later ended up liking a lot??

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 September 27, 2014 at 5 PM  central.


  1. Salad dressing. I've finally found a couple salad dressings that I enjoy.

  2. I could never eat the vanilla custard my mother used to make. One day she had some left over & froze it up into "iceblocks" to eat. Enough like ice-cream for me to have a go. Loved it from then on.

  3. i must say no. in fact it would be more the opposite i learned that there were several kind of food i loved as a child and can't even stand now^^;;

  4. I couldn't stand asparagus when I was younger - now it's one of my favorite vegetables especially grilled

  5. I used to hate peas and mustard, now I love them. But now I hate mayonnaise... weird right?!
    Congrats Nicole!

  6. I wouldn't even try brussel sprouts as a child---now I love them

  7. I didn't care about veggies when I was a kid - now I love 'em!

  8. Milk. I have a love and hate relationship with milk that comes and goes with time, lol. Now I like it xD

  9. Previously, I never cared for coconut all that much. But in the last five years, I really love it now.

  10. I never ate salad growing up. I think it was more that it was something that wasn't really served when I was little, so by the time I was a teen, I just couldn't try it without feeling grossed out - I couldn't even get it near my mouth. Now it's something I like to eat!

  11. Broccoli. Now I love it in stir fry, and with cheese!

  12. I never liked chili when I was growing up. Now I enjoy it!

  13. Can't actually think of one. I'm the opposite. Used to LOVE runny yolks. Now they kinda make me wanna puke. With all that fluidity. thank you.
