I did some catch up in the office today but spent a lot of time with a sneezy, runny nose. I hope it's just a reaction to cold weather and nothing more. I am fading this evening as I get this post ready.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
I was a bit surprised that only five people are curious or interested in Banned Books. Eight people said they are not interested or curious. No one had plans to read a Banned Book in 2015. Mystica and Elizabeth noted that the reasons many books were banned were just silly or not pertinent
The Winner from SBB #170 comments is: #13 Rita 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 #171 (One Question.)
Q1. This is a good question to ask in October. Nikki asks: 1. Have you ever come across a story so gruesome/scary/freaky (you get the point) that you had to quickly shut the book? (eg. Harry Potter when he came across that screaming book in the Restricted Section!)??
A: I am inclined to answer, "Yes." But I can't think what book it was.
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:

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.
a) Must be a follower.

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 October 11, 2014 at 5 PM central.
