I hope everyone is having a lovely spring and good weather. We did have showers today but the trees are growing and flowers blooming.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Six people do not participate in a sport and three others didn't say. The most popular sports for us are swimming (5) then walking/hiking (3). Other sports mentioned were running, volley ball, golfing, mini-golf, badminton and bike riding.
Sports we like to watch include the Olympics (4), Hockey (our Canadian friends! 4), Gymnastics (2), football (2), baseball, cricket, tennis, horses/jumpers, soccer and ice skating. Nice variety and it is interesting that the selections are a bit regional. :-)
The Winner from SBB #197 comments is: #4 Carol L who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the Updated ARC/Review titles or (not yet updated) Love titles - all linked near the end of the post. I'm hoping to update the book choices this week. Please let me know your choice by completing the (new) WINNER FORM.
WEEK #198 (One Question.)
Q1. nrlymrtl asks: Several of my friends/family have had their taste in entertainment change as they age; i.e. no longer enjoying action movies. Have you noticed a significant change in your reading tastes as your age??
A: This is a good question and I have to say "Yes, I think so". I find myself reading at least as many sci fi and action stories now as romance. I also find I prefer to pick romance with suspense, mystery or history... although I can still enjoy some small town romances too.
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. nrlymrtl asks: Have you noticed a significant change in your reading tastes as your age??
SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the Valentine and "Love" books or the February 2015 Newly Updated ARC/Review List. (My daughter pulled several of the Christmas titles to give with gift bags we made up for the nursing homes. I still have to go back and update that list with what is left and a few new titles to add.)
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 April 18, 2015 at 5 PM central.
