Sharing Beyond Books #182 Comment Giveaway 12/20/2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

I attended several nice parties this week as I continued working to get things all ready for at least my staff to be off. I am feeling so blessed to be looking forward to a relaxing Christmas week.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Eleven  of you do not or would not regift and ten of us would or have, even if rarely. Most of us that do regift agree that we only regift if it is a new, unused gift and would be useful to someone else. We also do not regift 'personal' or special gifts. We have received candles and brick-a-brac that is impersonal, and not selected specifically for us. These are the sorts of things we regift. And we only exchange for size or if we already have the item.

The Winner from SBB #181 comments is: #17 Llehn 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 #182 (One Question.)

Q1. Elizabeth asks:  What books are you looking forward to reading in 2015?? (This was for 2014 but I converted it to 2015.)
A: I haven't picked any special titles although I have been looking for a book for my First Read of 2015. I am participating in a 2014-15 Winter COYER - clear out your ereader - challenge so I plan to read several books from my Kindle Library over the next two months.  Below is one title I might make the First Read but I have not decided for sure. It will be a January read for COYER in any event. Maybe some of your book interests will catch my eye.

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. Elizabeth asks: What books are you looking forward to reading in 2015??

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.
