We are securely in Spring with the beautiful flowers and weather, even with some rain. I won't speculate on how soon we will move into Summer weather.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Four commenters are adamant that they always prefer the book to the movie. Two more don't watch movies so the book is always better. Two commenters rarely watch the movie as well as reading the book. That leaves six of us who have seen at least one movie that was better than the book and MaryP agrees that sometimes a movie can help explain a book.
The Winner from SBB #249 comments is: #14 Janhvi 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.)My question this week. (This has been in my Q queue since 2013.) 1. Do you watch political debates and/or follow election coverage??
It is not my intent to discuss the candidates but, yes, I am following the campaign news. It is hard in a presidential election year not to. The debates and campaigns this year have been disappointing to me. My primary observation is that I wish I was hearing a lot more on the issues and less name calling across the board. It appears we have to do a little more digging to see the real positions.

I appreciated the well stated article (except for the swear words) by Todd Daniel Crawford.
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.
Oops - I forgot to announce April comment provider winner. The comments were provided by: Carol, Rosebud, BN100 and Elizabeth.
Random.org picked #2 so Rosebud gets a book or GC.
Your turn to share:
My question this week. (This has been in my Q queue since 2013.) 1. Do you watch political debates and/or follow election coverage??
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 May 7, 2016 at 5 PM central.
