Sharing Beyond Books #146 Comment Giveaway April 12, 2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Many of us had a hard time to think of a 'weird' place that we visited although there were many unusual places mentioned. The two weirdest I thought that were mentioned were the Winchester Mystery house in San Jose mentioned by Booklady and the huge human nose at a science fair mentioned by Nikki.
The Winner from SBB #145 comments is: #7 scottsgal 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 #146 (One Question.)

Q1. Becky asks: Do you make a picture in your mind while reading??
A:  I wish I could say I see the stories I read and listen to, but I don't. I feel like I have limited mental imagery talent. I don't know if it is related to my generally poor eyesight (legally blind without correction). I usually only get blurry images of a story. Rarely do I get a clear picture except when it is something I might relate to like an orange glowing sunset or pink sunrise over water.

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:

Q1. Becky asks: Do you make a picture in your mind while reading??

SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the Valentine and "Love" books, the Christmas Giveaway Books (this is the new link), or the June 2013 Newly Updated ARC/Review List.

SBB Rules:

b) Share a comment on either of the two questions above.
Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.

I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made through Saturday April 19, 2014 at 5 PM  central.


  1. Once in a while I make a picture in my mind while reading, but for the most part I don't.

  2. No, I've a terrible imagination which is probably why I like to read so much.

  3. I mostly have a picture or image as I read. Sometimes the story will unfold like a movie would.

  4. I don't know where my comment went so I'll try again.
    I have a very creative menatl picture whenever I read a book. It's so embedded in my mind that whenever a book is made into a movie I can't get used to whoever they cast. :)

  5. I always visualise what I read. This is particularly true of settings in Asia.

  6. not always but that happens especially if i really love the book then i can even dream of it

  7. I would say what I picture is more abstract.

  8. Yes, I do try to get a picture in my mind. It satisfies me and I guess I will never know if I'm wrong!!

  9. Great question, I feel like I am watching a movie in my mind when I am reading, I call it the great escape.

  10. Yes I do, it's like watching a movie.

  11. Yes, I tend to create a picture in my mind while reading, but it depends on the book.

  12. I imagine the entire book in pictures in my mind---that's why I hate to see any movie based on a book I read since nothing is the same as I imagined,

  13. I try to. And mostly succeed. Unless it's some huge structure or building with multiple arches or something, then I get lost.

  14. Yes - I often do, but faces are usually fuzzy.

  15. If it's a book that really descriptive then I can see it - otherwise I don't pay much attention

  16. Yes, I do! They even have different voices so it's pretty much like watching a movie.

  17. Yes, I often have full movie style scenes playing in my head. If I can't picture it, then I often enjoy the story less.

  18. I always "See what I read" :)
