Sharing Beyond Books #224 October 24, 2015

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
Sorry I missed posting SBB on 10/17 and this past week but I was down with cold bug. I will still get four in for October but won't have a fifth week for a question from my list. :-)

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
There were 8 of us who do not subscribe to magazines, 7 who do and 4 who "do not anymore". Those subscriptions include Candanian Living, Reader's Digest, Our Iowa, Golf Digest and several woman's magazines.

The regular Winner from SBB #223 comments is: #13 Mariska 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 #224 (One Question.)

Becky asks: What color socks are you wearing? and do you like the very colorful ones or the crazy patterns ones??
This seemed like a fun question going into Halloween. At this moment I am not wearing socks. Most days I wear stockings which I find comfortable for work and church, even though I wear pantsuits rather than dresses. I will say that I have a blue  pair of grip socks from hospital which I will put on shortly after I walk the dogs. I happen to love colorful, cozy socks to wear around winter time!  
 (Love these colorful socks!)

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:
Becky asks: What color socks are you wearing? and do you like the very colorful ones or the crazy patterns 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 31, 2015 at 5 PM central.


  1. Around home I don't wear socks. I used to wear different colored socks, but now for work I wear black socks. During the colder months I wear white socks.

  2. I love the colourful & cute ones!

  3. I love socks. I don't wear shoes around the house, just socks. The more colourful the better. The pair I am wearing now are black with hot pink trim.

  4. Congrats Mariska. I wear jeans or pants in Winter & wear only white or black socks. But at home I have a lot of slipper socks in bright colors. The kids have put them in my Christmas stocking so there are snowmen, snow flake & elves. :). They keep my feet nice and warm. He first thing I do when coming home is take off shoes and put my slipper socks on.
