Sharing Beyond Books #176 Comment Giveaway November 10, 2014

Hello again on Saturday Monday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

We had a busy last few days of traveling in Georgia. Friday we toured Savannah and then spent an hour or two in the afternoon looking at motor-homes as we are getting ready to trade in our 38' unit for a smaller one. Saturday morning we were on the road again to Warner Robins to visit my sister and brother-in-law. For some reason the internet wouldn't connect. I didn't get internet again till midday Sunday as we were traveling home. Then I was making preparations to move items back into the house and spending the last few hours with my DH.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
We all get spam and, like Sarah said, wouldn't it be great if we really did win those lotteries we supposedly won! nrlymrtl and rubynreba noted too that sometimes subscriptions or important items go into the spam folder so some of us don't just "delete all" (even when tempted to do so). I agree with Mary P that some of the items are funny as "It's like someone just dipped into a thesaurus & got lost in there."


The Winner from SBB #175 comments is: #10 Emily 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 #176 (One Question.)

Q1. This week bn100 asks: 1. Have you ever read a book and wished it had an epilogue??
A: I know that I have read books where I wished there was an epilogue - either to wrap up loose ends or give just a bit longer with the characters and a peek at their future. I can't think of any right now but I do know that feeling of wanting just a bit more.

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. bn100 asks: 1. Have you ever read a book and wished it had an epilogue??

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.

I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made through Saturday November 15, 2014 at 5 PM  central.


  1. Yes, that happens quite often, yet I'm unable to recall the titles.

  2. Yes. So that I get a little more to read when I like the characters & story!

  3. Not so much an epilogue, but just more story. I like a story to feel complete. Sometimes if the ending feels rushed especially.

  4. I have read books like this. I don't like it when I'm done and I still have questions that weren't answered.

  5. Seems like I often am wondering what happened to some minor character or pet.

  6. Congrats Emily, and no. Though in hindsight, I do now reflecting on a book or two. I just didn't at the time that I read it.

  7. I find that quite often myself and then I think oh now I have another year for the sequel.

  8. I have read some and like it. I wish more books had an epilogue.

  9. quite often - I love to read what has happened after a bit of time has gone by!

  10. Oh yes, there are several times when I would have liked to have a little more time with the characters. I specifically remember wishing this fervently with Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and then a few years later, with Gaiman's Stardust. Perhaps I just want more Gaiman in general?

  11. There are times where I wish for a little more book. Or, as in the case for a recent book, I wish it was a series instead of standalone since I loved the characters so much and want more of them.

  12. Whenever it's a good book, always welcomed!
