Sharing Beyond Books #271 Comment Giveaway September 24, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Ten commenters are not bothered by swearing especially if it fits the situation. Six of us are not fans of swearing. We might read some but are apt to stop reading if the swearing is excessive.


The Winner from SBB #270 comments is: #14 Nikki 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 #271
(One Question.)
Rubynreba asks: If you have pets do they sit with you when you read or when you are on the computer??
I have a cat and two dogs. The dachshund is a kisser, not a cuddler, so he rarely sits or sleeps anywhere but at our feet. The rat terrier will lay with me sometimes while I read. But the one who is most likely to interrupt me while reading is the cat. She also loves to walk around the computer while I am typing!

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.
Questions for September were provided by: Miki, MaryP, Natalija and Rubynreba. chose 2 so MaryP gets a GC.

Your turn to share: Rubynreba asks: If you have pets do they sit with you when you read or when you are on the computer??
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 1, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. Congrats to Nikki!
    Yes, all three of my dogs are with me when I'm reading or using the computer. If reading my Chihuahua and my Chihuahua/Terrier mix sit on my lap if in the lazy chair or right next to me on the sofa. My chow mix lays on the floor next to the chair or sofa.

  2. I'm not a pet person, so I don't have any pets who would sit with me while I'm reading or while I'm on my PC.

  3. Any pets I have ever had are much too active to be siting still while I read.

  4. I have 2 cats and 2 dogs. The dogs will sleep at my feet in the office when I'm on the computer, but one cat will lay on a book I'm reading to stop my reading and get petting.

  5. We have a dog & she is very affectionate & yes, she sits with any of us who are around.

  6. Congrats, Nikki!
    Both of my dogs are everywhere I am.

  7. my dog loved to sleep neaer me when i was reading but he can't go upstair anymore, the cat doesn't mind safe....i don't know how but if i'm reading a book with a cat or a cat shifter ( or lion, tiger etc) suddenly he appears and either put his paw on teh book or try to move it with his head like he knew it could be a adversary^^ wolf shifter or bear or anything no feline he sleep or let me read in peace

  8. Congrats Nikki!

    I don't have any pets.

  9. My little dog always used to sit with me. I miss her.

  10. My 2 cats are busy frolicking on the rainbow bridge now, but when they lived with us, one of the cats liked to lay on my feet when I was on my computer, and the other liked to occasionally get on my lap when I tried to read.

  11. My two cats love to be with me when I read or when I am on the computer.

  12. Well, i have fishes so...this doesn't apply to me. Although would love to have a buddy to accompany me while I read and act as a temp furry bookmark. :)
