Sharing Beyond Books #234 January 2, 2015

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
Ugh- Tonight was a first. I had this post completely ready to post at 8:30. When I clicked to see where it was it was gone. I apparently had two blogger tabs open at one time and saved the old version after the scheduled one. Blah!

I didn't go see Star Wars last week as I was having back spasms and didn't want to sit in the theater that long. Everyone else enjoyed it.
We had a nice New Year's Eve dinner with seven friends from church and a wet and quiet New Year's day.
I hope everyone else had a safe New Years.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Eleven of you have not tried Windows 10. Three of us have tried it and Alyn tried it on her brothers computer. We all are good with it... at least I was until this week when one of my computers started acting up. It will not open on the start button and it is hard to close apps on the task bar. My son worked on it before he left but it is still not acting right. :-(


The Winner from SBB #233 comments is: #5 Rita 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 - maybe the beginning of next year, lol. Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.

WEEK #234
(One Question.)
Poetryinleaves asks: 1)Do you like/follow business or company pages on Facebook? (not counting using giveaway accounts) I assume people don't want a hundred pictures of chocolate bars posed in different ways, clogging up their feeds. But you tell me...
  Most of the sites I like at Facebook are book/publishing related. There are only one or two connected to my title company and I can't think of any connected to my law practice. I no longer spend much time on Facebook since I stopped playing the time sucking games a year or so ago.

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 January 9, 2015 at 5 PM central.


  1. I don't use Facebook. It took too much of my time, so I decided to leave it completely.

  2. I follow some local businesses on facebook and a couple big companies that have products that I REALLY like and who do a lot of good promotions on facebook.

  3. Thank you Martha!

    I do follow a few company pages.

  4. no facebook at all for me

    happy New Year to all!

  5. no; don't use Facebook

  6. Congrats to Rita!
    My answer has changed. I now have a new pc and it has Win 10.
    I follow all products, services and the like on FB through their pages. Not for giveaways, but it's nice to know when new products are coming and what their use is and things of that nature.

  7. ongratulations to Rita. I don't have Facebook so no I don't follow any. I don't think I would anyway for one of the reasons you mentioned with the chocolate bars. :)

  8. I don't like facebook. I find that it general it's just such a mess and so disorganised. I avoid it as much as possible.

  9. I follow a few. I try to avoid following them though because I already get ads shoved in my face for the stores and sites I visit, I don't need to constantly see them in my feed too.

  10. I follow a few local businesses. I am trying to cut back on time on Facebook.

  11. I only follow a few business facebook pages.

  12. I follow local home bakers and suppliers.

  13. I follow book blogs the most and authors that I like.

  14. I follow mostly people & blogs which are book related & some sports stuff, mainly tennis.

  15. If I can answer my own question ;) I don't have Facebook either but if I did I would follow companies I really like on the requirement they don't post too much.


Your comments are always appreciated!
