Sharing Beyond Books #293 Comment Giveaway March 4, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

The answers to last weeks question were pretty even. Seven commenters do not currently keep lists of books, although a couple used to. One only keeps track by her blog and the other seven of us keep some sort of list or lists.


The Winner from SBB #292 comments is: #14 Rubynreba who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the Updated **Old (and soon to be updated) ARC/Review titles or (recently updated) Love titles - all linked near the end of the post.

**NOTE: I hadn't realized I had not updated the book choices in quite a while. Also - I found a box of books under our clerk's desk that haven't been mailed out so I apologize that there are many late. I will get those out this week. I think there may have been one or two overlaps because I hadn't crossed off the list. I may just purchase the books to mail or I'll email the winners to see if they want a new choice. AND since I see that the list choices are dwindling I will add some new choices this coming week. Thanks for being patient with me!
Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.

WEEK #293
(One Question.)
Marjorie asks: After I read Pretty Girls by Karen Slaughter and Those Girls by Chevy Stevens, I found it hard to get into reading another book that held my interest. Have you ever had this happen to you??
I can't think of a particular time this has happened. However I recently was reading a sci fi series that I was really enjoying. I had to make sure that I didn't resent the review books that came up next and interrupted the series. I remind myself that I am blessed to have the review books I have selected or agreed to and that I can get back to the series in a few weeks. :-)

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: After I read Pretty Girls by Karen Slaughter and Those Girls by Chevy Stevens, I found it hard to get into reading another book that held my interest. Have you ever had this happen to you??

SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the Valentine and "Love" books or the February 2015 Newly Updated ARC/Review List. 2-4-17: I FINALLY have some new "Love" and Christmas titles! I hope to get the picture posted later this week.

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 March 11, 2017 at 5 PM central.


  1. No, just read more from Karin Slaughter or Chevy Stevens and problem solved.
    Congrats to Rubynreba!

  2. No--I can always find something that sounds interesting.

  3. Congrats, Rubynreba! My biggest problem after finishing a good book is choosing something that might be equally good or even better. I don't like going from a page-turner to DNF.

  4. hum only during school and it was because i so disliked the one i was forced to read that i simply couldn't pick another book.
    when i do enjoy a book i can be sad it end but that' doesn't prevent me to pick another...there are so many one to discover

  5. I have a long reading list, so I can usually find something to read.

  6. Congrats Rubynreba!

    When I read a book I love I do have a hard time starting a new book without comparing it to the great book I have just read.

  7. If a book or series is very good, it is hard to let it go and move onto the next. There is always the worry the next may not be as good.

  8. Congrats to Rubynreba. The only time I remember not wanting to read any other books for awhile was after reading the entire Outlander series over one summer.

  9. No. I find it easy to move on to the next book.

  10. This doesn't happen to me that often but if it does I just tell myself I'll reread the series after I'm caught up with my reading/reviewing goals.

  11. Congrats Rubynreba!
    No, I can always find something to read.

  12. Thank you for the win!! I usually have no trouble moving on to a new book. Now I want to read Pretty Girls and Those Girls since I have not read either one of them!!

  13. I sort of get it. Sometimes the standard is so high that we can't find more books of a similar standard. In times like this I stop reading for a bit, and play games/watch more movies or tv. Just take a break.

  14. I generally stick with one genre for a bit then bounce to another, that way one book isn't competing with another. I get a good reading mix that way. And when I read series, I like to go full force, generally.


Your comments are always appreciated!
