Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
All sixteen of us are silent readers. The only time we read out loud is when reading to our children or when listening to audio books ... which of course means we are listening not speaking. :-) And then there were those who read loudly in their heads!
The Winner from SBB #289 comments is: #15 Nikki 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.
(One Question.)Nikki asks: To most people, pets are treated as part of the family. So I'm curious, if you have pets, do your pets have human names or pet-specific names (eg. Snoopy, Garfield). If you don't have pets, what would you name your pets if you had some??
We've had a mix of names over the years. Our current dogs have pet names: "Princess" for the long-legged rat terrier and "Bear" for the long-haired miniature dachshund. However, our son named his cat (who has lived with us since he went into the service seven years ago) "Tiger Lily" - she is tiger striped. When we had a dove, she was "Rosie". My family dogs when I was a child were Chippy (shepherd mix) and Trinka (doberman). My childhood yellow cats were Daisy and Buttercup. My adult cat, a gray beauty of 18lbs and my companion for 18 years, was "Gandalf".

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.

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 February 18, 2017 at 5 PM central.
