Sharing Beyond Books #272 Comment Giveaway October 1, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Nine of us have pets who interrupt reading or computer- five with dogs and five with cats. Miki has one of each but her cat only interrupts feline shifter books. :-) Seven commenters do not have pets or their pets do not interrupt reading.

The Winner from SBB #271 comments is: #13 Denise (welcome!) 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 #272
(One Question.)
Marjorie asks: Do you read as many books in the summer as you do in the winter??
Turns out my answer is "no". I would have thought my reading would be more in summer because I might read during vacation - but that assumes I take a summer vacation. Looking at the past 7 years (using June - August and December - February) the record reflects 4 years I read more in winter and 3 I read more in summer. But the variance in numbers is usually only 3 or 4. I think I push at the end of the year to  finish challenges and I probably like to start out strong in the new year.

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: Marjorie asks: Do you read as many books in the summer as you do in the winter??

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 October 8, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. I read more in the winter than the summer because my daughter is in school so I have more time.

    But the biggest factor is how busy work is. If it's manageable or slow *crosses fingers* I can read MUCH more.

  2. Congrats, Denise! I haven't checked, but I don't think my reading is influenced by the seasons.

  3. The seasons don't have any effect on how much I read. It's just finding the time in general.

  4. hum i think i read more in winter but honestly i haven't checked it's just that when it's cold and reading iç either read or craft when it sunny i can do the laundry, garden etc etc

  5. I don't get the 4 seasons where I live but since I work full time, I do get to indulge more whenever there are more holidays

  6. I think so yes, I don't keep exact track but I do end up reading the same amount of books.

  7. Congratulations Denise. I read more in winter because I'm home more. During summer I'm out a lot more than winter.

  8. I read the same amount all year long.

  9. I think I probably read the same amount during the winter and summer months.

  10. Congrats to the winner.
    I slack in the summer by a little but try to keep up.

  11. No seasons so this does not apply. Just read when and where I can which is basically everywhere

  12. Congrats and welcome Denise!

    No seasons over here so it doesn't apply to me. I read whenever I have a free moment.

  13. I read much, much more in the cold weather seasons. During the summer I'm out in the sunshine.

  14. I read more in winter.
    This year however it has been so hot, I stayed in more and did read more than usual.
