Happy Saturday Night! Hope you have all had a nice summer week. I've been enjoying my reading when not working. (I couldn't get Random.org to work this evening so I put numbers in a bowl and picked.)
Thank you to all who shared last week.
The majority of commenters prefer to read the book before seeing the movie. Four will see the movie, one so they won't miss what the movie script didn't cover, and two have no preference. As for favorite romance movie: the most picked was Pride and Prejudice. I guess I need to see that ...I do like Emma but haven't seen PandP. The second most picked was The Notebook, another movie I haven't seen.
Tore mentioned several good movies I didn't think of like Lady Hawk. Birgit's favorite is Pillow Talk which reminded me that I used to love to watch Glass Bottom Boat with Doris Day. :-)
The Winner from SBB #60 comments is: #13 Tore There are still 6 'love' books to pick from and 2 Christmas choices. Tore please choose a book (or GC if international) from the remaining Love Books List for Giveaway, remaining Christmas Giveaway Books, OR pick from the Updated ARC/Review List and let me know your choice, your address and a choice of bookmarks by completing the WINNER FORM.
Q1. Birgit asks: 1. Apart from reading them, have you ever repurposed old books? Eg used old hardcovers as base for a bedside lamp or got crafty and made a mobile out of a picture book??
A: Other than giving away old books, I have not done 'repurposing.' However I do have some old law books and I keep thinking of making one of those designs like the picture below. Or maybe I can think of a way to make a table out of them... that would be cool too.
Q2. My question: Have you watched any of the summer Olympics? What is your favorite sport to watch?

A: I usually enjoy watching gymnastics and swimming. However, we haven't watched more than a very few minutes this summer.
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!

Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.
