Sharing Beyond Books #246 Comment Giveaway April 2, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
I had a nice week; work was steady but not crazy. A friend of my hubby bought a new RV and visited for three nights. The guys had a great time telling stories and comparing notes. :-)

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

A lot of us don't get up in time to see sunrises so nine prefer sunsets; five like sunrises (even if they see fewer) and three chose both.


The Winner from SBB #245 comments is: #4 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.

WEEK #246
(One Question.)
Carol asks: 1)If an Author you love wrote a book in a genre you never read would you read it??
I will usually try different genres from the same author, like contemporary romance and historical romance. Also romance and fantasy or sci fi. However, it doesn't matter how much I like the author I wouldn't want to read erotica and horror is iffy 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:
Carol asks: 1)If an Author you love wrote a book in a genre you never read would you read it??

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 April 9, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. Congrats, Miki!
    I almost never follow an author into a new genre (one that I normally don't read). If I remember correctly, I have done it only once.

  2. It really does depend upon the genre.

  3. if she startin another genre than teh usual i could try it especially if it's also a genre that i like. ex Wild man's curse by susannah sandlin is a thriller/ romance suspense not paranormal romance and i did LOVE IT
    if it's in a genre that i usually don't read it will depend, i could try steampunk etc but strong erotica or dark horror no matter how much i lovethe author i simply can't

  4. I would probably try anything by an author that I really like except horror or anything with a lot of blood and guts.

  5. depends if the book sounded interesting

  6. Congrats Miki!

    Yes I would read it.

  7. No, I'm specific in what genre I read

  8. Yes! I would definitely consider reading it.

  9. Yes, I would try a different genre, especially if the author is one of my favorites.

  10. Congrats, Miki!
    I would definitely read anything my favorite author wrote, even if they co-wrote the phone book. :-)

  11. No I wouldn't. There are some genres that I like to avoid.

  12. Congrats, Miki - enJoy!

    Freda, too funny! and I agree. I'd read whatever a fav author wrote and decide on their capability in the reading.

  13. I would probably try it and if I didn't like i, I wouldn't finish.

  14. congrats miki!!!

    ooo i definitely would at least give it a go. especially for fave authors I am always open to new things


Your comments are always appreciated!
