Sharing Beyond Books #274 Comment Giveaway October 15, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Three commenters might picture celebrities and six might visualize their own image of the characters. But the rest of us, (nine), do not really create or see character images.


The Winner from SBB #273 comments is: #5 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 #274
(One Question.)
bn100 asks: Can you stop anywhere in a book or do you have to finish the chapter??
This is another good question. Our ladies in book club noted this month that they like shorter chapters because they want to stop at the end of a chapter. Although that is my preference, I will stop in the middle if need be. Sometimes I just grab a few sentences before I am interrupted or have to get back to life tasks. So I am willing to snatch what I can whenever I can. :-).

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: bn100 asks: Can you stop anywhere in a book or do you have to finish the chapter??

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 22, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. Congrats, SueF!
    I can stop anywhere in the book, even in the middle of the page.

  2. I can stop anywhere. Easy enough to pick up where I left off.

  3. When it's a really good book I find it hard to stop until I finish! But usually I'm ok to stop anywhere.

  4. Congrats to SueF. I like to finish a chapter but life does interfere so there are times when I'll read a few words but have to stop. I have no problem getting back into the story.

  5. I always try to stop at a chapter ending. If the chapters are really long, sometimes I'll stop at a major break.

  6. can stop in the middle

  7. Congrats Sue.
    I just stop where I am reading.

  8. Congrats SueF!

    I will stop anywhere when reading.

  9. Congrats, Sue.
    I prefer to stop at the end of a chapter, but as long as it's a break in paragraphs, I will stop if I have to.

  10. i need to finish teh chapter or at least be between descriptive paragraph but that's if really really that can't wait the end of teh chapter

  11. At the end of a chapter, otherwise I feel lost!

  12. I'll stop wherever I need to. But if the book is really interesting, I have to finish the book, much less the chapter, in one sitting.

  13. I CAN stop anywhere because I've been bugged enough while reading and sneak it in as much as possible but I don't like stopping anywhere.

  14. I like to finish the chapter but yes, I can stop anywhere if I need to.

  15. I attempt to stop reading at chapters, but I often have to stop anywhere in the book - due to interruptions.

  16. I would rather stop at the end of the chapter but if I am interrupted (which happens often), I just put my bookmark in!

  17. I try to finish chapters (when I'm home) but if I must, I'll stop at a sentence when I'm at work.
