Sharing Beyond Books #296 Comment Giveaway March 25, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Ten of us like or expect to see some growth in the characters of the stories we read. The others feel it depends or don't look for much growth as the characters are defined by a set time and set role.


The Winner from SBB #295 comments is: #8 Mystica 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: AARGH - another crazy week, helping with my son's project and forgetting to pull books for new lists. I have to put it on my calendar or it won't happen. Guess I got lucky another international winner was picked this week.
Thanks for being patient with me!
Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.

WEEK #296
(One Question.)
Rosebud asks: Books by what author are instant buys for you??
I used to have instant buys and authors whose books I would hunt down for my collections. Not so much anymore but I can think of several that fit this category sort of -- it isn't quite instant - I wait till my Audible credits renew if I have too: New books in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs; the Destroyermen Series by Taylor Anderson; the Monster Hunter International series by Larry Correia; S.K. Dunstall (currently reading the Confluence series) and old time favorite Mary Balogh.

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.
Questions for March were contributed by: Marjorie, Elizabeth, Becky and Rosebud. chose 1 so Marjorie gets a GC.

Your turn to share: Rosebud asks: Books by what author are instant buys for 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 April 1, 2017 at 5 PM central.

  8. I have quite a few A list authors but I have to consider the price before I buy any books

  9. I don't have any instant buys that I can think of, as I more often request titles through my library than purchasing them when they come out.

    Congrats winners.
