This post is late as my husband decided pretty much last minute to drive several hours to visit with our son and d-i-l and granddaughter. D-i-l and Sweet Pea will be traveling to China next week to visit family so we wanted to see them before they were gone for several weeks. DH & I went for lunch and ended up staying through dinner. We had a lovely visit but didn't get home until after 10:15pm.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Except for two of us, we agreed that we had been disappointed by books that were hyped and/or popular. As Natalija said: these are 'it's me, not you' situations. Fredamans noted it as 'to each his own' and Nikki said sometimes it was due to a mood and she would try again too. Llehn and Alyn read the negative reviews to get a balanced report and Miki relies on bloggers who have similar tastes to her own.
The Winner from SBB #244 comments is: #1 Llehn 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.)Becky asks: 1)Do you prefer sunrises or sunsets???
I definitely see more sunsets than sunrises so maybe that is why I think I prefer sunrises - though I like both!

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.
Thank you to March Contributors: Natalija, Rubynreba, Marjorie and Becky. Random.org picked 1 so Natalija gets a GC.
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 April 2, 2016 at 5 PM central.
