Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Interesting again: only four out of 17 have participated in some form of Secret Santa or RAK (Random Act of Kindness) book gifting. Five never heard of it and eight others never participated. At least six (plus those of us who have participated) think it would/could be fun. (It is and I'll try to remind you all when I see a link this year.)
The Winner from SBB #268 comments is:#12 Llhen 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.)MaryP asks: Are you disappointed when the cover models don’t match the author’s description or doesn’t it matter???
I find it more annoying then disappointing - especially if the hair color is wrong or obvious things like that. And then there is some annoyance when I see the same image on two different books. (ie example image below.)
Also, I have recently read a very good book but had to wonder about the title. It was catching, and that is probably why it was used, but it was a little misleading.

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: MaryP asks: Are you disappointed when the cover models don’t match the author’s description or doesn’t it matter??
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 September 17, 2016 at 5 PM central.
