Sharing Beyond Books #248 Comment Giveaway April 16, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
I hope everyone has had a relatively good week. Certainly we have not had to face the terrors of the earthquakes in Japan or terrible snow storms in Denver this week.
My week was busy with lots of traveling and trying to juggle office work while my daughter/staff was out recuperating from foot surgery.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that the majority, 9 of us find it hard to give away our books. Three find it easier because they like to share, are giving to others in need or filling Little Free Libraries. Three more give away what they won't read, like school texts or books they didn't care for, or share with friends and family.


The Winner from SBB #247 comments is: #6 Alyn 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 #248
(One Question.)
bn100 asks: 1)How do you feel about cover reveals??
I can't say that I get too excited about cover reveals. Mainly I think it is a time issue. I barely have time to write my reviews and visit a dozen other blogs. I'd rather peek at a few reviews than spend time looking at covers. Not to say that I don't enjoy a post that discusses covers now and then as I do.
This is a very cute graphic for cover reveal. :-)

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.)

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 23, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. I appreciate a good book cover, but I don't care enough about cover art to read those posts so I simply skip them.

  2. I don't really take too much notice of cover reveals.

  3. i don't really care for coer reveals safe if it's in a seris that i follow and in which the new release took more than 1 year then cover reveals are a way to remind me i need to put it on my list

  4. I don't get very excited about cover reveals---it's the books themselves that excite me.

  5. not interested in them

  6. I like to look at the covers but, I am more interested in the reviews than anything.

  7. I hardly ever click on cover reveals, to be honest.
    Congrats to the winner!

  8. I'll look at them if I see them, but won't go out of my way to look for them.

  9. I only ever participate in cover reveals for authors/series I am gung ho about..but I do like looking at the pretties :)

  10. I look at them if I see them, but I don't always take the time to look at them.

  11. I don't pay too much attention to cover reveals.

  12. I don't go crazy over them. It's just reviews for me!


Your comments are always appreciated!
