Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Eleven of us don't have too much trouble moving on and finding another good read. Four have had some difficulty after a really good book not to compare it to the one before or miss a good series. A couple suggested taking a bit of a break in that event. Miki had a hard time picking up another book after having to read a book at school that she didn't like, but she doesn't have a problem after finishing books she does like.
The Winner from SBB #293 comments is: #1 Fredamans who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the
**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. I FORGOT THAT TASK TODAY SO I WILL WORK ON IT THIS COMING WEEK. Thanks for being patient with me!
Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.
(One Question.)Elizabeth asks: After you read a book, do you typically keep it on your bookshelves or pass it along to friends??
(I thought this followed well on last week's questions - sort of.) As any of you who have followed my blog for a bit know, I tend to gift my print books once I read them. I also print review books and audios after a time - minimum six months. I do have a few favorite authors that I had collected over the past. I am not doing that so much now since so many titles are available on Kindle. But I still have a good dozen collections that I haven't started giving away yet. :-)

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.

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 18, 2017 at 5 PM central.
If it's a book I know I would like to read again I just put it on my shelf. I have lost too many books over the years by passing along a great favourite.ReplyDelete
If it's a good read but I doubt I will read it again I will happily share.
Right now most of my books I have borrowed from my local library, so they get returned. The few that I do buy I keep after reading them. I sill have all my ebooks that I have gotten.
If I love or like it I keep it on my shelf. If I hate it I pass it along.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the win. I filled in the form.ReplyDelete
For me, I only keep the books I feel I cannot live without. So books from my favorite authors I always keep. The rest I pass along to my friends and family, who I give it to depends on the book and the person.
It depends if i'm keeping that series. If yes, then back to the collection it goes. If not, I pass it on.ReplyDelete
I keep the books I like but am happy to share them with trusted friends and familyReplyDelete
Congrats to the winner. I keep some of my favorites and my autographed books. I also pass them on to my daughters and friends. Especially when I ran out of book shelves and started having piles on my nightstands. :)ReplyDelete

Most of the books I read I give to our local library. However, I have a couple favorite authors that I keep all their books.ReplyDelete
I keep the books I love and donate the books I know I won't read again. My book cases are getting full. Time to buy another one.
I keep it, but out of sheer laziness. If someone asks to read my books I let them take them.ReplyDelete
I pass my books along or I sell them to the used book store.ReplyDelete
I keep my favorites and books that I plan to re-read, and pass along the other print books to friends.ReplyDelete
usually i keep them especially if it's part of a series ( could always need a reread between release) but something i offer them ( but never throw them away and not yet sold any)ReplyDelete
My friends don't read much, so for the most part I keep my books or bring the ones I didn't like to BookCrossing drop off/pick up place.ReplyDelete
I used to keep them all but when I started running out of room, I only keep favorites and pass the others on to friends.ReplyDelete
donate most of themReplyDelete
