Thanks to everyone who commented on the last SBB post
There were good responses on what we look for in reviews! Many want specifics or reasons why the book was liked or not so they can determine better if they would like the book. The other area mentioned at least three times was specifics on details like bad language, explicit sex, and cliffhangers as well as other elements that a reader might not want to read. Elizabeth made a good suggestion which I use too - consider at least one positive and one negative review to get a perspective from each end.
~~~~The Winner from SBB #132 comments is: #1 Bookishqueen 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 #133 (One Question.)
Q1. Mary P asks: What kind of movies do you like to watch & which movies have you seen or plan to see??
A: We may have had something similar but this is still a good question to answer for the beginning of a new year. We tend to watch movies on TV, Netflix or Roku. My DH loves to watch Hallmark movies and we watched alot at Christmas time. Other times we watch sci fi, action and some comedies. We stay away from dramas and movies with bad language.
I am looking forward to seeing Catching Fire and Divergent.

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 still have a supply of questions but from the same people so hopefully others will send more in -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify to use.
Your turn to share:
