My post is late tonight as I had to spend an hour helping my DH pull up the boards where my new shower will go because the cat was under the flooring. Poor Kitty. Poor Hubby whose back is killing him. They aren't very happy with each other and fail to see the humor in the episode. :-)
It will be down to 29 so cold for us tonight. I hope everyone else is staying safe and warm.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Nine commenters do not do challenges at all. Two find them too stressful and others find them restrictive or prefer to read to relax. Two people only participate in the Goodreads Challenge. Sue F usually doesn't do challenges but is participating in a local library reading program. Becky does a couple during the year and Miki does a few but, like me forgets to do the check-ins. Which leaves Fredamans, who is a host and enjoys participating in the challenges.
The Winner from SBB #236 comments is: #6 Miki 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.
(One Question.)Bn100 asks: 1) Some authors put warnings on their books if it contains certain subject matters or language. Do you think all authors should do this??
I appreciate warnings about explicit language or sex and a few other particulars as I don't want to read those books. Sometimes there is a warning that the book is "gritty". That makes me look carefully too. I don't think it is needed for all books but if there is something that might be offensive to readers I think the author should be willing to give a polite warning.
This is so cute I want to open the book! Then again, I am a fan of monkeys.

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.)
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 30, 2015 at 5 PM central.
