Sharing Beyond Books #177 Comment Giveaway 11/15/14

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

I've had a catch up week at work while I try to get used to being off the RV schedule (early nights and early mornings). My home computer seems to be faltering with the internet which has been a little difficult.
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas although it is hard to think another year will soon be over.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Everyone seems to agree that they like epilogues and have read some books where they wanted more. Sarah M mentioned wanting a series instead of just an epilogue. Nrlymrtl wants more at the end of Gaiman books which I think I can understand from the one I read. :-)


The Winner from SBB #176 comments is: #5 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 #177 (One Question.)

Q1. This week nrlymrtl asks: 1. Have you ever taken a class on book binding so that you could repair your own favorite books??
A: I have never taken a book binding class. However, looking at these creative bindings makes me interested.

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. nrlymrtl asks: 1. Have you ever taken a class on book binding so that you could repair your own favorite books??

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:
a) Must be a follower.
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 November 22, 2014 at 5 PM  central.


  1. I haven't. I did not even know that book binding could have so many variations!

  2. What a great question. I have not, but it could be loads of fun. I love my crafts & can see how I could get very creative.

  3. Congrats to the winner. Such an interesting question. I was just tinking about this very topic. Some of the book binding I have seen from the padt are jut incredible. I would love to at least try it. :)

  4. I've never taken a book binding class but I had a friend in college who had a work-study class at the college library where she learned to bind books. As a result, she started making her own little books out of recycled paper and discarded book covers or used calendars. Very unique!

  5. i didn't even know those kind of class existed... not sure it's possible in my country but now i'm quite interested yes

  6. No, I haven't taken a book binding class. It does sound appealing though.
    Congrats bn100!

  7. I've never taken a book binding class, I didn't even know there was such a thing before now.

  8. No class on book binding for me. If one was offered up here in the northwoods, I probably would take it.

  9. No - I'm not crafty at all plus I pretty much only read books that are on my Nook Color.

  10. hmmm ... never thought about taking one ... something to put on the 'to do' list

  11. I have never taken a book binding class. It does look interesting, but complicated.

  12. No, I have never taken a book binding class.
