Sharing Beyond Books #242 Comment Giveaway March 5, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
I hope everyone had a good week and is getting ready for weather changes. 
I am still playing catch-up. Our son had to report to work on Thursday so they went for the weekend but Hui and the "Sweet Pea" will be back Monday for another week visit.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Everyone (19) of us agree that we are not really influenced or swayed by the author endorsements. Many will read them, though a few ignore them. A few don't trust those endorsements at all and many of us prefer to rely on reader reviews.


The Winner from SBB #241 comments is: #1 Poetryinleaves 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 #242
(One Question.)
Natalija asks: 1) What are your favorite book settings??
This is a hard question for me because I think I like a variety of settings. I love outer space and historical settings more than contemporary and I like small town more than city. I like western romances, more than western cowboy. And thinking about it I think I like US settings just as much as foreign or exotic places. Soooo - that did not help me narrow down a "favorite" setting. I think maybe mine tie with outer space/other worlds, including alternate history, and Regency London. Oh - but I love Scotland and Ireland too.
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:
Natalija asks: 1) What are your favorite book settings??
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 March 12, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. hum good question for urban fantasy i don't like alternative world but this year i'm really enjoyinh New Orleans/ Luisiana setting it's simply perfect for urban fantasy and so many other henre ( historical, romance suspense) so i guess it's my favourite

  2. I love reading about different cities or countries with a little bit of their history and traditions mixed in.

  3. I don't have a favourite. There are several I like: SciFi romance, medieval. I don't care for contemporary.

  4. Congrats Poetryinleaves!

    I too like myself a good historical romance setting. Space is cool too if done properly. Am also intrigued by futuristic setting as I want to see if they can guess what we'll actually invent in the future, if that makes sense.

  5. I like contemporary romance set in small towns. I also like historical settings and books set during the Civil War.

  6. I can't pick a favorite setting---I enjoy variety.

  7. I enjoy a wide variety - it depends on what I'm reading. :)

  8. I don't have a favorite.
    Congrats to the winner!

  9. I like books set in the South during the Civil War, Amish books, small town books, and beach settings.

  10. I don't have any absolute favorites. Happy to travel the globe.

  11. I don't have a favorite. I like a variety of settings.

  12. A whole different world with something like Medieval setting.

  13. Congrats to the winner. I don't have any one favorite stting. I love so many.

  14. I enjoy books that the story line takes place in the U.S.

  15. Congrats, Poetryinleaves! I'm not a big fan of a small-town setting and I tend to skip books that are set in my own country. As for the settings I really like: Great Britain, Texas, New Orleans, and there is nothing like a secluded mountain cabin, especially if it's a suspense novel.
