Sharing Beyond Books #275 Comment Giveaway October 22, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

We are very evenly split on where we stop reading. Ten of us prefer to finish a chapter if/when we can. Nine of us can stop anywhere. And a couple mentioned they like to finish a good book in one sitting!


The Winner from SBB #274 comments is: #3, Linda 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 #275
(One Question.)
Elizabeth asks: Do you prefer to read print or digital books; and does your preference change with fiction vs. non-fiction??
We asked about e-readers four years ago (December 2012) at which time 11 commenters preferred print compared with 9 who liked their ereaders. Since the question came up again, I thought it would be interesting to see if preferences have changed.
My preference does not change for fiction/non fiction but I do read to the grand kids from print. Otherwise, I still read much more on my Kindle and listen to audios. I have to push to read 12 print books a year (besides the kid's books).

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: Elizabeth asks: Do you prefer to read print or digital books; and does your preference change with fiction vs. non-fiction??

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 29, 2016 at 5 PM central.


  1. Congrats, Linda!
    I read only fiction and for the most part in digital format. I'll buy paperback/hardback only if it's for my keeper shelf.

  2. print definitively no matter the genre

  3. I think that I will always prefer print no matter the reading material.

  4. I prefer all my reading to be print---I find it very hard on my eyes to read digital.

  5. For me, my daughter's book need to be print too. While I love print books, I've been reading far more on my phone.

  6. Congrats Linda!

    I read both print and digital books but I prefer print.

  7. Congrats to Linda.
    I prefer print, but read probably just as many ebooks. Sometimes ebooks are easier to acquire, whether free or to save time sending via post mail.

  8. I will only read print and I do like nonfiction and fictional books.

  9. I still prefer to read print books or digital books, but most of the authors that I read do more digital books than print now days. My preference doesn't change on the fiction/non-fiction books, I still read about the same on both of them.

  10. I tend to read more ebooks, due to convenience. But I also still read print books, especially fiction at the beach, as well as children's books, cookbooks, etc.

  11. I prefer Print books and it doesn,t matter if they are fiction or non-fiction. Congrats to Linda.

  12. I prefer print books but also read some on my kindle.

  13. Digital because of the convenience - shelf space, mobility (packing an ebook reader when I travel vs hauling along a bunch of books! as an example) and durability. I don't read non fiction so the 2nd question is moot.

  14. Congrats Linda.
    I prefer print books.

  15. I prefer print books, but I have my Kindle/Kobo/ibooks loaded up mainly with romantic reads, although I have lots of others there too.
