Another busy week for me and I am working hard to get things caught up. I have been reading some good suspense this week.
Thank you to all who shared last week.
There are several people who don't drink while reading so they don't risk spills. For others the drinks range from coffee, tea, water and sodas... even an occasional glass of wine. I think I would fall asleep if I tried to drink wine when I read. Llehn had the most different drink a banana mocha shake - which almost sounds decadent. :-) Maria admits to reading through meals, when alone. I do that too, especially at lunchtime when I eat at my desk with the Kindle going.
Snack choices are for the most part not healthy things like: chocolate, cookies, chips, popcorn. Marianne had the more healthy choice with nuts or craisins; and Lissette eats fruit. Carol L eats trail mix as a second choice after chocolate licorice! Really?? I love chocolate and I love licorice ... but not together. LOL
The Winner from SBB #58 comments is: #11 Di There are still 6 'love' books to pick from and 2 Christmas choices.

Q1. Abby asks: Have you ever watched a movie because it won an award? Which movie was it? Did you actually like it??
A: I had to think about this. Well, actually I had to look up a list of award winning movies to remember. One movie was A Beautiful Mind. And yes I liked it although it isn't one I would watch over and over - rather sad.
Q2. My question: To go with Abby's - Have you ever read a book because it won an award? Which book? Did you like it ??
A: I again went the lists: Hugo Awards (sci fi) and Pulitzer Prize. I had picked up two books at Audible for their ratings and award: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (Hugo 2009) which I just read this month and rated it a 5.0.
The Road by Cormac McCarthy (Pulitzer Prize 2007) I listened to in 2008 and rated it a 5.0 at Audible. This book started me reading more post-apocalyptic stories.
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! July questions were offered by: Krystal, Mary P, Faith Hope and CherryTea and Abby. Random.org picked #4 -- Abby gets a book pick.
