Thanks for understanding why I didn't post last week. I hadn't had a chance to get the post ready ahead and the cruise internet is slow and costs per minute. I basically have to prepare the posts off line and then load up to save time.
Is everyone getting ready for the holidays by now?
Thank you to all who shared two weeks ago.
Surprisingly the larger group of commenters DOES re-read, some regularly and some only sometimes or just a special book or two. Others might re-read if they didn't have such big TBRs.
Also surprising to me - Many of you still send Christmas cards. Nine send out cards and several of us send e-cards and/or family cards. When are kids were young we did the family letter routine but we haven't for years now although that is a great way to keep others advised of changes, births and jobs, etc.. I think I would love to read one of nrlymrtl's letters with the farm antics!
The Winner from SBB #77 comments is: #1 Mystica There are still 5 'love' books to pick from and new Christmas choices. Mystica please choose a book (or GC if international) from the remaining five Love Books List for Giveaway, the new Christmas Giveaway Book list, 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.
WEEK #78 Questions
Q1. Winnie asks a book question: I know a lot of us stay up late at nights to read books, but I'm interested to know if there is anyone who would wake up early to sneak some reading time in before the day begins??Q2. Abby asks a holiday related question this week: Do you feel more obliged/in the mood of giving during the festive seasons? Or more so in times of serious crises ie. Sandy Relief??
I do, I do! LOL. I will sneak in reading whenever I can even if it means waking up early. I don't necessarily 'get up' but I have the kindle or mp3 next to me so I can listen or sometimes I will go to the restroom and bring my book back for a half hour reading before I get up! :-)
A: I tend to give various times of the year and for special crises. I have certain charities that I like to make sure I give donations to and often that occurs early in a year.

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! We can always use fresh questions.
