Sharing Beyond Books #294 Comment Giveaway March 11, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

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 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. 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.

WEEK #294
(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.

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 18, 2017 at 5 PM central.


  1. 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.

    If it's a good read but I doubt I will read it again I will happily share.

  2. Congrats Fredamans!
    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.

  3. If I love or like it I keep it on my shelf. If I hate it I pass it along.

  4. Thank you for the win. I filled in the form.
    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.

  5. It depends if i'm keeping that series. If yes, then back to the collection it goes. If not, I pass it on.

  6. I keep the books I like but am happy to share them with trusted friends and family

  7. 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. :)

  8. 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.

  9. Congrats Fredamans!

    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.

  10. I keep it, but out of sheer laziness. If someone asks to read my books I let them take them.

  11. I pass my books along or I sell them to the used book store.

  12. I keep my favorites and books that I plan to re-read, and pass along the other print books to friends.

  13. 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)

  14. 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.

  15. 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.


Your comments are always appreciated!
