Sharing Beyond Books #203 Comment Giveaway May 16, 2015

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

It was a busy week this week. I had hoped to go in today to do some clean up on my desk. Instead I got side tracked with a trip to Walmart to get my oil changed. Which meant I had to shop while one thing let to another and I shopped buying things I needed and gifts for my secret sister. :-) Then I took them home and my DH had me stay for lunch... then nap. Soooo I never got to the office.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
You each offered wonderful car choices with two mentioning Rolls and several mentioning classic cars. I really liked Miki's choice of "KITT" the robotic, talking and self driving car from the series and movie Knight Rider.

The regular Winner from SBB #202 comments is: #12 Fredamans 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 #203 (One Question.)

Q1. Jess1 asks: If you had to choose a different first name, what would it be??
A: Hmmm - I have always liked my first name. During sixth grade my friends called me Marty but my mom didn't like that. I'm glad that she made me stick with Martha. Since I was born two days after Christmas nice choices would have been Holly, Ivy or Noel. If I had to choose - I think I might like Ivy.

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: If you had to choose a different first name, what would it be??

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. One of these days I will get together a new box of Christmas titles.)

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 May 23, 2015 at 5 PM  central.


  1. I like flower names, so Rose or Lily would be my choice. Ivy works for me too.

  2. hum i think i always liked my name, at a time i enjoy Beth ( elizabeth) because of little women but soon after i learned it was only one of teh translation for my actual name so i was happy with it^^

  3. I rather like my name---but if I had to choose a new one I think It would either be Jonnetta or Sherilyn.

  4. I actually love my first name :D

  5. WOOHOO! Thanks so much. I filled in the form!
    I wouldn't change my name. Now, if you asked me this ten or twenty years ago, it would be a different story. At my age, I like being the only Freda in the room.

  6. I wouldn't change my name, but I have always like Elizabeth or Desiree.

  7. wouldn't change my name

  8. I've always liked my first name, but I'd consider changing my middle name.

  9. I like my name now, but growing up I wished I had a name that could have a nickname. When I was pregnant and we were picking girl names, I wanted Isabella, so I'd chose that.

  10. Maybe to something like Elisabeth or Isabella. Thanks for the opportunity.

  11. I wouldn't change my name, Julia seems to be aging with me nicely! But, I was almost a Sarah.

  12. I like Sarah for a name

    Congrats Freda on your win.
