Sharing Beyond Books #260 Comment Giveaway July 9, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

It is a little difficult to summarize pet peeves and likes in romance books. However eight of us noted we do not like prolonged sexual content and several of us do not like graphic sex. Several mentioned they like sweet romance and romances that reveal the caring of the characters. Fredamans and Rubynreba noted they want the build-up for the relationship, not just love at first sight. Two people mentioned they do not like cliffhangers and bn100 doesn't like (in addition to cliffhangers) grammatical errors, cheesy dialogue, and cliches.


The Winner from SBB #259 comments is:#6 SueF 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 #260
(One Question.)
Becky asks: Do you like to read outside??
I suppose I am not a huge fan of reading outside when it is hot. But during spring, fall and cool, but not cold, winter I sometimes enjoy reading outside.

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:
Becky asks: Do you like to read outside??

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 July 16, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. I do indeed but not at the's in the high 90's with a heat index over 100. Not the ideal time for outside reading... *-*
    (Not an entry.)

  2. No, I don''t read outside. We live in a flat and our balcony faces a street with a lot of traffic. Too loud and distracting .

  3. I find it very distracting to read outside, so no.

  4. Congrats to Sue. Only in Spring or early summer before the intense heat.

  5. Congrats Sue!

    I love to read on my patio when the weather is nice.

  6. Congrats, Sue!
    I like to read anywhere. Outside is always nice from Spring to Fall, but Winter, I hibernate. :-)

  7. Not really i love to read by the open windows yes but i like being cozy when reading i guess with pillows etc and i don't get a place outside that would work well ( no garden etc)

  8. Yes, I enjoy reading outside, especially at the beach or near a swimming pool.

  9. I love to as long as it's not too hot. I have a shaded area that has a hammock and I pile it full of pillows and read for hours. I love to read on the beach and at the pool as long as it's got a cool breeze and cold drink close by.

  10. No. Much too hot & too many insects.

  11. Nope. I like to read indoors because I can't concentrate with too much noise.

  12. Thanks so much! No reading outside for me---the mosquitos would carry me away.

  13. Congrats Sue!
    Yes, I enjoying reading outside.

  14. No, I prefer to read inside, much more comfortable.

  15. The weather has to be just right! I love to when it is not too hot or when the bugs are not out. We have long winters so the time frame to be able to read outside is relatively short.

  16. Nope. I live in a REALLY hot country so definitely nope. But on holiday in a country experiencing cool climates, SURE!

  17. I love to read outside! Wether that be on my hammock in the mornings or at patio for my lunch break for work. I find it very relaxing.
