Sharing Beyond Books #225 October 31, 2015

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
Sorry I missed posting SBB on 10/17 and this past week but I was down with cold bug. I will still get four in for October but won't have a fifth week for a question from my list. :-)

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Nine (9) of us like colorful socks to wear, mostly around winter time. A few more commenters like slipper socks even though they wear black or white for regular day. Four people mostly do not wear or like to wear socks.

The regular Winner from SBB #224 comments is: #16 Nikki 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 #225 (One Question.)

Rosebud asks: Do you read books that match your moods or opposite...sad books when your sad or sad books when your happy and so on??
I can't say that I buy by mood. First - I am rarely sad. But if I was, I sure wouldn't want to read something sad. And if I was angry (also rare), I wouldn't pick angry. Actually I rarely pick sad or angry books to read anyway. I prefer happy or action - no matter my mood! 
Okay - pick a mood. :-).

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.
Question Contributors in October were: Marjorie, Poetryinleaves, Becky and Rosebud. Random.org picked 1 so the winner this month is Marjorie. 

Your turn to share:
Rosebud asks: Do you read books that match your moods or opposite...sad books when your sad or sad books when your happy and so on??

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 November 7, 2015 at 5 PM central.

  2. i don't think so.... when i'm not feeling well ( sad, depressed or sick) i will read a book from a favourite as not to get disappointed ( at least i hope so wjhen i pick it) or i won't read at all because i know my mood will impact my feeling of teh book and it wouldn't be fair if i want to review it

  3. Congrats Nikki. I go by my mood. If I'm down or sad I stay aay from emotional reads etc with all my other reads. I have bought books and put them aside due to mood. Hope you're feeling better.

  4. I sometimes read various books based on how I feel. If I'm more tired, then I'll read a lighter book that doesn't require much focus. Or if I'm a little sad, then something more funny or one of my favorites. I try to save books that I'm more excited about reading for when I have a few hours set aside to read, since some books are hard to stop after reading only one chapter!

  5. I just read what I want, moods do not affect what I read.

  6. Congrats Nikki!
    I do mood-read, unless I have tour books. They always come first.
