Sharing Beyond Books #58 Comment Giveaway

Welcome to another SBB!

My week was busy but good - had some closings and I am slowly getting caught up in my various businesses. Reading is good and helps me relax. 
Thank you to all who shared last week.

Most of us do have a system for our books - most by genre and author. Many of us put series together. Natasha has hers in an order to read. Mine would change too often if I tried that. Several have no system...oh bless your hearts and shelves! :-)

Looks like we could have fun watching Ricki dance the Tango and chacha or Elizabeth dance various styles, including swing. A couple of you like to watch the Latin dances and many of you watch DWTS and other dance shows.


The Winner from SBB #57 comments is: #4 Carol L.  There are still 6 'love' books to pick from and 2 Christmas choices. Carol L 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 #58 Questions

Q1. Faith Hope and CherryTea asks: what's your beverage of choice when reading??
A: I think we may have answered this when the Qs were on Enquiring Minds (over at Lori's/Dollycas site) but I didn't find it in my spreadsheet. So we will answer here now.  I usually drink two beverages while I read, write or work: water and coffee.  Occasionally I will have tea.

Q2. My question: To go with your beverage of choice, what is your favorite snack to have while reading??
A:  I certainly don't snack most of my reading time or I would be snaking all day. :-) I suppose the few times I do snack while reading it would be a) Twizzlers red licorice, 3-5 pieces; b) chocolate; or c) a small bowl of chips or popcorn.

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. Faith Hope and CherryTea asks: what's your beverage of choice when reading??

  1. 1 & 2. I cannot drink or eat while reading. With eating, I'm too worried I might get food on my book. I guess I can drink if I am reading on my computer, and in that case, it is always either chocolate milk, hot chocolate, or water.

  2. Usually, I don't like to drink something when I'm reading, because I'm so distracted with the story that I forgot that I have a drink by my side, lol. But, when I do, water is the first thing, and the other one a soda with ice..!! And about the snacks, it could be anything, any fruit. Or chocolate!! =) yumm!!

  3. 1. Banana mocha shake.

    2. BBQ nachos.

  4. 1. Tea, of course. The plan is usually hot tea but then I read and read and suddenly I'm left with cold tea, hahaha!

    2. I rarely eat while reading, but if I do it's things like chocolate and cookies.

  5. I will have Pepsi if I drink anything while reading.
    And snacks are chocolate licorice, love them. Or trail mix.

    Congrats to the winners. GFC is Lucky47.

  6. 1. I often put the kettle on for a cup of tea when I have time to settle in for a read.

    2. With my cup of tea I will usually grab a biscuit (cookie)of some sort to have with it.

  7. What do i drink while reading? Well, in the morning i drink my coffee...of course that is when i usually check blog posts. Then later i switch to water or perhaps green tea. Snacking? Not so much unless it's nuts or craisins.


  8. I usually don't drink while I'm reading. If I'm thirsty I'll stop & get up to get a drink; usually water. I have to admit a weakness for snacks while reading; especially peanuts or chips.

  9. I usually don't eat or drink when I'm reading. If I did drink, it would be coffee.

  10. 1. Iced coffee or a soda with some ice.
    2. I usually don't eat anything when I'm reading but if I do it's a small snack like crackers or peanuts.

  11. I enjoy either juice (like pineapple w/a bit of seltzer) plus a cookie without chocolate; or milk & a chocolate cookie. It all has to be handled with one hand while the other is holding the book. Snack can't be messy cause that hand has to turn the pages.

  12. I like to drink coffee or Coke when I read. I snack on cookies or chips.

  13. 1. iced tea
    2. chips

  14. 1. I usually drink water...sometimes juice or tea.

    2. I try not to snack while reading, but I'll always enjoy something sweet or savory. :)

  15. 1. I drink water if anything
    2. chips or popcorn

  16. I drink coffee in the morning and diet lemonade or water the rest of the day. That's pretty much it.

    I am not much of a snacker. If I go for a snack, it's whatever is around...a piece of cheese, some fruit or crackers. Not very exciting.

  17. 1. I usually drink water or sweet tea.

    2. I don't snack much but if I am in the middle of a great book I will keep on reading while eating breakfast , lunch or dinner. If I am by myself, I will put the book down to eat with my family but otherwise...

  18. Coffee, hot tea, water, wine- depends on time of day.

    I don't usually snack while reading, but if I do, it's nuts, cookies, crackers and cheese, or a bowl of cereal.

  19. 1. Don't have one. Since I will ALWAYS put the book down in case of spillages!

    2. Usually cookies or chocolate. But again, like above, I will just take a break. And have a Kit Kat! LOL I couldn't stop myself. Although I don't eat that very often.

  20. My go to choices for any activity are ginger ale and chocolate. But it really depends on my mood.

  21. 1. I would usually have water or tea.

    2. Usually don't snack but when I do I think my snack choice is chips.
