Sharing Beyond Books #256 Comment Giveaway June 11, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
Since the last SBB (#256) post was late I will allow it to run through 6/14/16.
I am working on this a bit earlier than some nights after a full day at work.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week and "Welcome" to another new visitor.

There were ten comments, eleven counting mine. Seven are not interested in buddy reading. Several (at least four) never heard of the concept. Two commented that the concept is interesting but seems good especially for children.


The Winner from SBB #255 comments is: TBA after 6/14 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 WINNER FORM.

WEEK #256
(One Question.)
Infuse asks: Do you read seasonally? eg - summer/fall/winter/spring themes at the time you're reading??
I like this question. Yes, I like to read seasonally. Maybe not as much as I would like but I like to pick spring, summer, fall and winter titles to read during those seasons. I have even started a collection of books for monthly, I just don't get the time to do the reading. Maybe I'll make it part of my reading goals for next year.

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.

Your turn to share:
Infuse asks: Do you read seasonally? eg - summer/fall/winter/spring themes at the time you're reading??

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 June 18, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. Not really because we do not have seasons (I think this is the reason!). However I do not like to read Christmassy reads other than at the season

  2. Congrats to the winner! I might read a couple of Christmas themed books in December/January but that's it.

  3. Sometimes I read seasonally, but not all of the time.

  4. not exactly... i perhaps read more of some genre at some season ( romantic suspense a bit more in summer time) but he action of the story isn't set in summer or it's a coincidence. the only exception is: christmas stories those i can only read in winter as not to spoil the magic feeling^^

  5. No, I don't read seasonally. I just read what I feel like reading.

  6. The only time I read seasonally is at Christmas time. Then I love to read some of all the wonderful holiday themed books!

  7. Congrats to the winner!
    I don't read seasonally. I just read whatever, whenever.

  8. I read Christmas books at Christmas, that is the only season that I switch topics.

  9. No. I don't experience the 4 seasons

  10. No, I read whatever books I have.

  11. I do read Christmas books around the Christmas holidays. That is about the only seasonal reading I do.

  12. I read holiday books around their particular holiday, but other than that I don't read seasonally.

  13. I don't read seasonally with the exception of Christmas time. I love Christmas reads. Congrats to the winner.

  14. Sometimes I read seasonally, since it's slightly odd to be reading about a snowy Christmas story, while at the beach in the summer. :)

  15. I read whatever books that i have :)

  16. No, I'm a series junkie so I like to read series in order no matter the time of year. So sometimes I end up reading holiday books at rally odd times and summer beach books in the winter.
