Sharing Beyond Books #219 Comment Giveaway for September 12, 2015

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
I am finally feeling much better. And I am looking forward to fall.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Commenters are evenly split. Nine like fairy tale retellings and nine who do not like fairy tales or have never read them. Two people want to read the Lunar Chronicles and I plan to read Cinder soon. Two others, like me, are watching Once Upon a Time. And I am pretty sure I agree with Carol L that Cora, the mother, is the most wicked.


The regular Winner from SBB #218 comments is: #9 fredamans who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the Updated ARC/Review titles or (not yet updated) Love titles - all linked near the end of the post. I'm hoping to update the book choices this week. Please let me know your choice by completing the (new) WINNER FORM.

WEEK #219 (One Question.)

Elizabeth asks this week: What is the weather like in your hometown in September/October??
We have pretty nice weather here in north Florida - as long as we don't have hurricanes which don't really hit my town. Temperatures in the past two weeks have been in mid to high 80s during the day and high 60s at night. In October it will be more like 80 during the day and high 50s at night. Precipitation is only about 3.4 inches. We have a major peanut harvest in October.

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! The supply of questions is dwindling so share some if you think of any -- 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 or the February 2015 Newly Updated ARC/Review List. (My daughter pulled several of the Christmas titles to give with gift bags we made up for the nursing homes. One of these days I will get together a new box of Christmas titles.)

SBB Rules:
a) Must be a follower.
b) Share a comment on the question 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 September 19, 2015 at 5 PM central.


  1. Very rainy and then intense heat! this happens throughout the day so that the humidity is very high.

  2. Congrats, fredamans! I live in Italy, and the weather here is really nice. Now it's around 78°F by day, but I'm looking forward to cooler days.

  3. It's spring here. The days are warm & sunny and the nights are a touch cool. It's ideal weather. We are about to have our annual Carnival of Flowers here in town. The town is blooming, literally.

  4. Weather here in northern Minnesota can be really nice in September/October with temps in the 60's --- or awful with cold weather and blizzards. I'm hoping for a nice fall this year.

  5. Weather definitely cooling down earlier in the evening and taking longer to warm in the mornings with shorter hrs of sunshine. Still very green but it will begin to colour gold and orange in Oct... really gorgeous, with hay being baled and sunflowers full faced , ready for harvesting...

  6. September and october here hum rain ( lot of it sometimes all day long) grey... with occasionaly one day here and then which is dry, not too windy with a littel sun but those are rare

    At least it give the motivation to work indoor ( so pretty please can you answer me about the colors and lenght for teh scarf Thanks!)*hugs*

  7. With the exception of the last three days of temps in the low 80's the weather here in my part of Jersey has been horrendous. High humidity making it much hotter then the mid to high 90's. For me I can't be outside due to copd. But fortunately the temps have been tolerable and a breeze in the evenings. Hoping this is how it will stay.

  8. Currently, it's still warm summer weather, yet it will be much cooler and very rainy, by the end of October.

  9. Congrats Freda, nice win.

    I live in Southern Ontario and Sept. and Oct. is perfect weather.
    Around 50-70 and no humidity. The best time of the year for me.

  10. Thank you so much!! I filled in the form.

    Today and yesterday has been chilly and rain. Blech.

  11. We're having what I call the 5th season. HAZE season!! The freaking haze is SO THICK you could cut it with a knife. I kid you not. Air conds aren't very good for the environment, but during the 5th season, there is no choice but to lock yourself up in an air conditioned room!

    So BOOO I'm so waiting for it to be over.

  12. Oct is the rainy season which is actually pleasant! I live in the tropics & if it's not rainy it's really hot.

  13. The temperature varies in the 70's and sometimes 80's during the day and the evenings will vary from 40's to 60's.

  14. We are still hitting the mid ninties here in Texas!

  15. We have had unusual weather here in Iowa this past month. In one day alone we had 9" of rain and a flooded basement. The past week has been very hot. I think we are getting more back to normal now with the days in the 70's and and nights down to the 50's and 60's.
