Sharing Beyond Books #162 Comment Giveaway August 2, 2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
It's been a busy week for me. I am tired but not exhausted.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Sarah attended BEA 2012 (lucky) and Miki has attended a manga convention. How sad that they destroy the books instead of doing giveaways! The other 13 commenters have not attended a convention but most would like to, especially if there was one nearby.

The Winner from SBB #161 comments is: #8 bn100 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 #162 (One Question.)

Q1. Becky asks: 1 Do you use the Library much or is it easier just to buy the book??
A: I have to admit that I have only been to our local library twice in the nine+ years we have lived here. Last time was before I began this blog in 2009. So I read books I get for review, books I download, books I have won or books I purchase, usually at low price for ebook or used for print.
Our sweet, if small, library.
I make a commitment to visit before the end of 2014.

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 use the Library much or is it easier just to buy the book??

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:

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 August 9, 2014 at 5 PM  central.


  1. I love my visits to the library. We are actually having a new library built here in town. I'm looking forward to that.

    I do buy books as well, but mostly books I have already read & loved & want a copy for re-reading.

  2. We live close to our local library so I do use it. I know that I should use it more though!

  3. I adore libraries! since childhood when mom used to walk us across town to pick out our next treasures thru my own stint as church librarian. I drove across the city on friday to pick up a Jane Austen audio and another dvd, then back to my local library and got 6 JA books [all for Austen in August!]
    YES! I definitely make use of my libraries =)
    Seems this was the perfect question for this reader ;)

  4. We didn't have a library in town until a few years ago so I have gotten used to buying books. Our library is so small that the selection still isn't that great so I'll probably continue buying---but I do try to buy used books or find them at garage sales to save money.

  5. We have a small library here and I have gone into it only 1 time. It is very, very old. I shop at the used book stores and buy online for my books mostly.

  6. Congrats to the winner!
    I used to go to the library regularly, then they charged me for a book I returned claiming it was lost, and I stopped after paying the fine.

  7. We go every 2 weeks to get my son books. It's where I get most of my audiobooks, although the selection isn't as good as my previous library. I'm actually considering an out-of-town membership to that one for the online audiobook selection.

  8. I love the library in my city. It's a very nice library. I always reserve books online from other libraries in nearby cities and go pick them up at my local library. I go at least 2-3 times a month. It's mainly to get books for my children.

  9. I love the library, but unfortunately, there's only a small library in my current city without an English language section.

  10. I used to use the library more but haven't been in awhile

  11. I wish I had time to go to the library but I would just ended up spending hours upon hours there and I don't have time to do that.


Your comments are always appreciated!
