Sharing Beyond Books #173 Comment Giveaway October 18, 2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
We are on the road! Had a good travel today and are in a nice campground at Arley, AL. The weather is lovely but not too much tree color yet. The internet went off once already so I'm not positive this will get posted but I will try.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
At least two commenters do not celebrate Halloween in their country/area. I loved the idea of Fredaman's custome fav which is totally new idea to me: a lamp with a lampshade on her head! Rubynreba's custome memory was sweet too as she remembers the time she wore a mask and her husband's clothes and surprised her dad


The Winner from SBB #172 comments is: #11 Di 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 #173 (One Question.)

Q1. This week Miki asks: 1. Did you ever visited a place/ city because it was where the story took place in a book you read??
A: I was glad when I visited London that I knew of Hyde Park and other areas but we didn't visit there because of a book. On the other hand, this trip we had planned to visit 
Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania which is the setting of the movie Groundhog Day and home of Punxsutawney Phil. Unfortunately my DH said today we may reroute as that is almost a 100 miles distance out or our way. That is not such a big deal but the mountains or hills may make a difference with the motor coach driving so we are still thinking about it. :-)

Image found out Wikipedia.

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:

  1. I'd love to visit the Highlands in Scotland (I read a lot of hist-rom) as well as England

  2. Good question, but no. I would like to though. Scotland beckons right now.

  3. ^^ In my case i haven't because most of teh setting are either imaginary or in the USA but after reading the sentinel of new orleans by suzanne johnson i'm dreaming of visiting New Orleans one day

  4. I've never traveled somewhere because of a book setting.

    Just an FYI, Groundhog Day was primarily filmed in Woodstock, IL - they have an adorable town square that was used in the movie. Here's a link with info - it was a big deal for a small Illinois town

  5. Congrats Di!

    I haven't... yet... but have always wanted to go to England and see Sherwood Forest. So much so, that family has sent me the information booklet years ago.

  6. Didn't visit just because of books, but when I was in Bath I certainly took special notice of places mentioned in Regency Historicals that I read.

    Just submitted the winners form - Thanks so much!

  7. I've never visited a place because of a book. But, I love books set in New Orleans, and they always make me want to visit.

  8. Not that I recall, yet there are some places I recognize while traveling from various books.

  9. I've also thought it would be fun to go to England.


Your comments are always appreciated!
