Sharing Beyond Books #223 Comment Giveaway for October 10, 2015

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
I am enjoying the cooling weather as fall has moved in nicely here. I am mindful though of dangers for those in the fire areas (California), the flooding areas (east coast of the US), severe weather in UK, and typhoon victims in Taiwan and China.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Eight commenters feel they are not online as much as they used to be due to families and life issues. Six people feel they are on too much; one wants to get outside more and another wants to exercise more. Alyn even thinks her online time lessens her reading time - ouch! One person feels well balanced on time and another person feels it is up and down.

The regular Winner from SBB #222 comments is: #8 Rita 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 #223 (One Question.)

Poetryinleaves asks: Do you subscribe to any magazines? If so, which ones??
I no longer subscribe to magazines. A long time ago I had STACKs of National Geographic - I donated them to a library. And I used to get Highlights for my kids mainly because I loved that when I was a kid. My children didn't enjoy it as much as I did. :-(.  
(At least this image isn't full of nearly nude covers!)

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! The supply of questions is dwindling so share some if you think of any -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify to use.

Your turn to share:
Poetryinleaves asks: Do you subscribe to any magazines? If so, which ones??
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 the question 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 October 17, 2015 at 5 PM central.


  1. No I don't. I don't read any magazine. I much prefer books.

  2. No, way too expensive for very little real value. I do read some online - free as.

  3. Yes, I subscribe to magazines. When I was a teenager I used to get Horse & Rider and Horse Illustrated. Now days I get Taste of Home, Woman's Day, Family Circle, Family Fun, Woman's World Magazine. Last year I was getting a couple different Quilting magazines, but I don't remember the name of them right at the moment.

  4. I'm an avid golfer and subscribe to Golf and Golf Digest. Both my husband and I read them.

  5. Thank You Martha!

    I subscribe to Better Homes and Gardens, Woman's Day and Family Circle. After I finish reading them I pass them on to my daughter-in-law.

  6. No, I do not subscribe to any magazines. Also, I loved Highlights as a kid but I noticed my oldest has no interest in it. Maybe my two younger ones will.

  7. I don't subscribe to any magazines, but I enjoy reading fashion and travel magazines.

  8. Congratulations Rita. I used to subscribe to many magazines, especially when my children were all home. I stopped about a year ago when I realized I'm so into my books the magazines were going unread.

  9. no i don't, i haven't found any magazine worth the price here, the quality ( or thematic) isn't to my linking but i do prefer books anyway^^

  10. Congrats, Rita!
    No subscriptions anymore. Used to subscribe to Canadian Living and Chatelaine, but now I just buy them once in a while.

  11. Never did. Enjoy reading them though

  12. I used to but not anymore.
    i only read books and buy one or two magazines once awhile.

  13. I subscribe to Canadian Living and Readers Digest.

  14. It doesn't surprise me most people don't subscribe to just seems that they can do so much better and don't. Some children's magazines I subscribed to years ago seemed decent though (American Girl, Spider, and Cricket).

  15. Yes. I've cut down to 1. Reader's Digest.

  16. I subscribe to only one magazine, Our Iowa. It has many beautiful pictures of our state and interesting little stories.
