Sharing Beyond Books #283 Comment Giveaway December 17, 2016

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

We had a wonderful group of superpowers among the commenters. Healing was mentioned most, by 7; next 3 included invisibility; at least 2 wanted to be able to communicate broadly, including animals (and vegetals); 2 wanted the power to read minds and 2 wanted fast travel (or teleportation). There were several others including time manipulation, control of elements, super genius intelligence, and the ability to bring peace to everyone - which is lovely thought.


The Winner from SBB #282 comments is: #8 bn100 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 #283
(One Question.)
Because next Saturday is Christmas eve I have decided that I will not post then. I do plan to post the last Saturday, and last day of 2016! I will leave the comment answers open until that day and here is the topic that you can share before, during, or at the end of your holidays; (you may answer more than once but I'll only count one comment each person for the giveaway): What are you looking forward to most, OR what did you enjoy most, during this 2016 holiday??
We greatly enjoyed our Thanksgiving with both of our kids and all the grandkids. I am sorry we can't do that for Christmas. I am looking forward to church service to be held Christmas morning and then spending part of the day with our daughter and her family.
The Christmas season seemed to come in very quickly, perhaps because we were out of town in November. I didn't even get to do office cards this year. DH did buy a tree today and we strung the lights and hung favorite ornaments. We still have the same angel tree topper from our first Christmas together, now 31 years ago. I think most of the shopping is done and I will start wrapping tomorrow.

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: My Question for two weeks: What are you looking forward to most, OR what did you enjoy most, during this 2016 holiday??

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 December 31, 2016 at 5 PM central.
