Sharing Beyond Books #54 Giveaway Comment June 23, 2012

Welcome to another SBB!
I'm still in South Florida but we were pleased that they had Dad sitting up in ICU for the first time in 10 days.
Thank you to all who shared last week.

More fun questions! I welcome William as a new commenter - maybe we can get some male perspective. :-) We all remembered our first user names. William's was work related but I have to admit I love Abby's first user name -Abyssinian, because she loves cats.

Okay - so most of you DO NOT fall asleep while reading - 9 compared to 7 of us who do. At least two others, Linda and Margaret, join me in waking up and grabbing a book. :-) No one else acknowledged that they wake up in the middle of the night and grab a book. Guess I am the odd ball out on that one.

The Winner from SBB #53 comments is: #9 Jane There are still 7 'love' books to pick from and 2 Christmas choices. Jane please choose a book (or GC if international) from the remaining Love Books List for Giveaway, remaining Christmas Giveaway Books, OR pick from the ARC/Review box (New Updated list at the Giveaway Hop) and let me know your choice, your address and a choice of bookmarks by completing the WINNER FORM.

WEEK #54 Questions

Q1.  Birgit asks: Is there a genre (or more than one) you would never ever read??

A: Well- Never ever is a long time! I don't choose to read much erotica but every once in a while I read one by an author I know online or one I might win. So that is not "never ever". I pretty much do not read menage or GLBT as those are not my thing.  Most other genres I will read even if some are only occasional.

Q2. My question: What is your primary online tool: desk top computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone??

A: I carry my laptop wherever I go as I use it at work, home and travel.  I do have a tablet that I am just growing accustomed to.  I do not yet have a smartphone.


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 will draw from the suggestions I used the month before and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions but some of you others might want to get in a question or two as we have a few people submitting most of the questions so far.  Either way - it works for me. :-)  The question list is being replenished!  Thanks for sending in questions!  

Your turn to share:

1. Birgit asks: Is there a genre (or more than one) you would never ever read??
2. My question: What is your primary online tool: desk top computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone??

SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the remaining  Valentine and "Love" books or the remaining Christmas Giveaway Books - there are still about 9 books available to choose from. Also I have added the Review and ARC Box now.

SBB Rules: 

a) Must be a follower; 
b) Share a comment on any (or all) of the two/three questions 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 by Friday, June 29, 2012 at 10 PM central.


  1. 1. I will try anything, but I am not a big fan of Western, Military, or Erotica.
    2. My desktop is definitely my fav online tool, but I am currently writing this on my laptop.

  2. 1. While I'm not exactly into Erotica myself (a few steamy scenes are ok as long as the plot doesn't suffer) a genre I'd never ever want to read can be found in non fiction ... sports! Yes, sports. Could there be anything less appealing and more boring? To me anyway! ;-)

    2. Desktop, mostly. Though I usually take my small Netbook with me on vacation, even on small trips. My cell phone is just that, a phone. I mean, I could use it for the internet too but this would be overdoing it I think.

  3. 1) Not fond of the vampire/paranormal genre

    2) Desktop only.


  4. Congrats to the winner.

    I hate to say Never but I wouldn't read Horror. Read too many when younger and scared myself silly. lol

    I only have my desk top computer.Thinking about getting a Laptop though.

  5. 1. I don't feel inclined to read straight out horror. I do like a good thriller or suspense, but I don't need the gore thank you.

    2. I use a desk top computer,but if my son has taken over, for whatever reason, I will use my daughter's laptop.

  6. I don't read erotica or vampire books at all. No interest there.

    I use my netbook mainly but have to go to the desktop when I need to print something.

  7. 1. Erotic- too much sex and not enough romance or plot

    2. my desktop

  8. 1. I'm not a huge fan of adult fiction, to be honest, or nonfiction (have to read that for school though)
    2. I primarily use my laptop

  9. 1. I will usually read anything, but I don't really care for nonfiction.
    2. I mainly use a desktop computer, but I have a laptop too.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. 1. I read all genre (as long as there is romance with an HEA), but I must confess that Historical Romance is my favorite
    2. Laptop for me

  11. 1. I'd never read horror. I read for relaxation & for a feel good feeling which I don't equate to being scared out of my socks! I admit to being a total chicken!
    2. I use my laptop. It's the only electronic gadget I have.

  12. 1. I don't really see myself reading Self Help or sports books, that might fall in the category of non fiction.
    2. I use my desktop computer, I don't own a laptop or else I'd be carrying it everywhere with me.

    Thank you. :)

  13. 1. I'll read almost anything, but I'm not quite a fan of thriller/horror books.

    2. I mostly use a laptop and iPod touch.

  14. 1. HORROR!! Stephen King is really scary to me although I have watched some of his movies...with one eye open and the other one half-shielded by a blanket (just in case!). Oh, I have not gotten into autobiographies either, or maybe the ones I've seen are just too stuffy?

    2. Laptop person here!! Can't be bothered with my old clunker aka desktop com!

  15. 1. Well, I don't read some types of nonfiction (excluding memoires). I'm just not very interested.
    2. I use my laptop & sometimes my desktop.

  16. 1. I will most likely never read in the horror genre. (don't watch horror movies either)

    2. I mainly use my laptop, but when I'm out and there's free wifi, I do use my smartphone to surf the web sometimes.

  17. I don't think there's a genre I won't read ever, but I prefer not to read some genres. Mostly erotica, or horror, or westerns, or steampunk.

    I use my desktop computer for internet mostly. And my iPhone for Twitter.
