Sharing Beyond Books #229 November 28, 2015

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
I hope everyone has had a lovely week and maybe a little time to relax. Our weather started the week cold but finished beautifully. We've had a grand visit with our son and family. :-)

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Most of us (eight) had not seen bookish accessory blogs/ads. Also most of us agreed that it wouldn't change our choices. Two think it is too early to think about gifts for Christmas and two only want books, with a third only wanting adult coloring books.


The Winner from SBB #228 comments is: #10 Linda  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 - maybe the beginning of next year, lol. Please let me know your choice by completing the (new) WINNER FORM.

WEEK #229 (One Question.)

Nikki asks: 1) If you were given the choice of getting one book, would it be a book from a brand new and positively reviewed series or would it be a book from a series you are currently collecting??
This is such a hard question and one I face often. When I am choosing a review book or how to "spend" my audible credits I am often weighing the choice of picking the next title in a series I love or am collecting or picking a book from a new series. I try to get to both. However, based on my last few Audible choices I think I have chosen books in series I am currently collecting. Three examples: The Monster Hunter Series; The Destroyermen Series; The Andy Carpenter Series.
 There is truth in this quote. :-)

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.
THE COMMENTS IN NOVEMBER WERE FROM: bn100, Elizabeth, Miki and Nikki. The Comment winner for November is ELIZABETH.

Your turn to share:
Nikki asks: 1) If you were given the choice of getting one book, would it be a book from a brand new and positively reviewed series or would it be a book from a series you are currently collecting??

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 December 5, 2015 at 5 PM central.


  1. I'd want to get the next book in the series I was reading. I can always wait to begin a new series.

  2. I'm not a big fan of the series in general, I prefer stand-alone books, but if I really had to choose I'd go with a book from a series I'm currently collecting, because I tend to avoid overhyped books/series as much as I can.

  3. Congrats Linda. I think that I would get the next book in a series I'm alrady reading.Thank for the giveaway chance.

  4. I'd probably pick the one which was more expensive!

  5. I'd love the latest Elizabeth George. Its one book only and hers are chunksters!

  6. i absolutely don't know... i have so many series started that i want to continue so most ften it's a book from one of these but sometimes they are series i have wanted to try for a long time ( no need for it to be populare or reviewed a lot) and it happens that i pick the first book of one of these series as well....

    i guess right now it would be 50%-50%

  7. It would be for a current collection. I am collecting books from J.A. Jance and I am hard time finding them in the used book stores. Because I live in Canada wants to charge me $7.49 for shipping.

  8. Congrats Linda!
    I would take a book from a series I'm collecting.

  9. I'd probably choose one of the series that I'm currently reading, since I've started a lot of book series already. But I'm always looking for something new, too.

  10. book from current series

  11. I couldn't answer that question. I buy based on the moment.
    Congrats, Linda!

  12. I would choose a new one from a series I don't own yet because I love discovering new books!

  13. The new one, if I wanted it really badly.

  14. Congrats Linda!
    It would be a book from a current series unless I'm at the end of that series.

  15. It would be from a series I am collecting :)

  16. I would pick a book from a current series. I'm always excited for the new ones to add to a series.

  17. I would probably choose one from a series I'm collecting since it would be a tried and true author and series.
