Sharing Beyond Books #255 Comment Giveaway June 7, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
Sorry this is posting late. I was busy with family in town on Saturday night and I forgot Monday night. I almost forgot tonight too! That's what happens when I get busy and am playing catch up.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week and "Welcome" to another new visitor.

Six commenters do not watch book related videos and six commenters enjoy them. Four have watched a few. Faith Hope and Cherrytea was very enthusiastic and I liked learning about the #bookbuddyathon she has participated in.


The Winner from SBB #254 comments is: #13 Marjorie 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 #255
(One Question.)
Faith Hope and Cherry Tea asks: Do you buddy read? Have you ever? Would you consider buddy reading? Why/why not??
I have not done a buddy read unless you count book club reading the same book. I really like the sound of the #bookbuddyathon that Faith Hope and Cherrytea mentioned last week. It sounds like a fun way to share reading with online friends.

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.

Your turn to share:
Faith Hope and Cherry Tea asks: Do you buddy read? Have you ever? Would you consider buddy reading? Why/why not??

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 June 11, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. No, I have never buddy read and I don't see myself doing that. It's a commitment of sorts and since reading is a hobby I prefer not to stress and simply enjoy the book.

  2. Thank you so very much for the win.

    No I do not buddy read.

  3. I have never heard the term Buddy Reading before, but it's something children do a lot of.

  4. no never have and i don't think i would be tempted to at least these days

  5. I've never even heard of it!

  6. Congrats, Marjorie.
    I don't buddy read.

  7. Congrats Marjorie!

    I've never heard of it.

  8. I think buddy reading is interesting, especially for children.


Your comments are always appreciated!
