Sharing Beyond Books #115 Comment Giveaway 8/31/13.

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to SBB, Sharing Beyond Books.

We just arrived home from cruise and I only have my travel computer. My daughter has my everyday work/play computer but I managed to pull together this post. I did relax on the cruise but now we are a little tired tonight because of the drive back.

More of you save your ebooks than delete, ten saving to five deleting. The others do not have ereaders.

Eleven  of us have fairs somewhere near enough to visit. Eight do not have or do not attend.

Thank you to all who shared last week.
The Winner from SBB #114 comments is: #7 nrlymrtl who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the ARC/Review titles, Christmas titles or Love titles - all linked near the end of the post.  Please let me know your choice by completing the (new) WINNER FORM.

WEEK #115

Q1. Emily asks: What is the one book you have read over and over again and it only gets better the more you read it??
A: I really do not read any book over and over EXCEPT the Bible.  YES, it gets better and better the more I read it! :-)

Q2. My non-bookish Question: Have you ever attended a rodeo??
A: We have a local ranch and regular rodeo events. The year we moved to this community we attended the rodeo and it was great, family fun. We need to go again soon with the grandkids. :-)

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 are getting low on questions so hopefully you will send more in -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify to use. 

*****Contributors for August have been: miki, mamabunny, Becky, Mary P and Emily. The random pick winner is: #5 Emily - gets a book choice or GC.****

  1. Q1: I have read some books over and over, but I wouldn't say that they have gotten better each time I have read them. I remember almost everything that happens in them though. I agree with you about the Bible, it does get better each time you read it over and over.
