Sharing Beyond Books #286 Comment Giveaway January 14, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week. I continue to hope everyone is staying safe and warm during the icy winter weather or the rainy summer weather -- on the otherside.

This was a fun question and here are the comfort foods:
6 go for ice cream; 3 go for soups (or stew or chili); 3 go for grilled cheese (or bacon cheeseburger); chocolate was mentioned 3 times (one was hot chocolate); and potatoes, macaroni & cheese, pizza, and popcorn each got a mention. Good foods all!


The Winner from SBB #285 comments is: #8 Sue 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 #286
(One Question.)
Marjorie asks: What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning??
I roll out of bed, pick up my phone (used for alarm), my mp3 player (always handy for bed time), and water glass and take them all toward the bathroom. I then read my Bible passages before I shower; I get ready and go to work. I usually eat breakfast at work (omelet and bacon), unless I am off to court when I just take a breakfast bar.
Here's some encouragement for you!

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: What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning??

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 January 21, 2017 at 5 PM central.


  1. The very first thing I do is switch on heating (because we don't use it during the night) and go to bed for 20 more minutes of sleep.

  2. I shower first thing, put the washing machine on, make breakfast and read emails. Hang out the wash & then get on with my day.

  3. Hit the snooze button. I am not a morning person!

  4. Congrats, Sue!
    I get up, urinate, and shower. Every single morning.

  5. i switch off the alarm, i push the cat ( always in the way) put some food in his bowl then i go downstair after having grbbed my clothes for the day

  6. I made my bad :)
    Happy Sunday :)

  7. Congratulations to Sue. I open my eyes and immediately stretch all the kinks out of my body before I even get out of bed. And 9 times out of 10 I head right to the ladys room. :)

  8. Drink a cup of coffee and then make the bed.

  9. I usually try to go to the gym or for a walk outside when the weather's nice.

  10. Thank you!! The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth, then feed the cats, then take a shower----by then I'm finally awake.

  11. Use the bathroom, brush my teeth, check my emails, and then eat some cereal!

  12. Bathroom first, turn on coffee, then start computer.

  13. Alarm, bathroom, pack lunch, off to work. Sad really.
