Sharing Beyond Books #308 Comment Giveaway June 24, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Well our commenters are not ones to read horror - 11 of us do not read horror. 5 of don't read erotica, plus another who doesn't read porn. 3 don't read sci fi-- that surprised me since I have come to love sci fi. At least two don't read vampires and shape shifting. Natalija doesn't like to suspend belief so no paranormals or urban fantasy as well as no sci fi.


The Winner from SBB #307 comments is: #16 Rubynreba who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the Updated (**Finally!) ARC/Review titles or (recently updated) Love and Christmas titles - all linked near the end of the post.

**NOTE: I did post an Updated ARC and Other books for Giveaways. I have to go back and list the titles -- someday.
Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.

WEEK #308
(One Question.)

Nikki asks: Are you the adventurous type when it comes to outdoor activities??
I think I was adventurous when I was younger. I parachuted once, road in a hot air balloon two times, flew in a glider once, and I used to snorkel and scuba dive. I had the chance to para-sail one time and I wish I had. My daughter did a bungee swing - ugh! And of course back in the day I did some mountain hikes -- Appalachian/Blue Ridge (NC), Diamond Head (HI) and Marin County (CA). I was never good at skiing and not so good even at bicycling (just ask my family). These days I do calmer things like tour caverns; fun but not so adventurous.

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 July 1, 2017 at 5 PM central.


  1. Definitely no! My idea of fun is to be cosy inside with a book or on holidays watching TV. Even in a foreign country, I will do the sights but need quiet down time often. Not very good for others I travel with though.

  2. When much younger I was of an adventurous mind. But marrying very young and having 7 children took al my time and concentration. So I was adventurous in thought anyway. :)

  3. There are lots of things I would love to try (parachuting, hang gliding to name a few) but I'm just too lazy now to make the effort to do them.

  4. Congrats Rubynreba!

    In my younger days I was more daring but now I'm older and wiser.

  5. I'm not very adventurous and never have been---I'm afraid of heights so that really limits a lot of adventures. Also I'm rally a klutz--which can make some adventures down right dangerous.

  6. not at all^^ i will walk long walk even but nothing else

  7. I used to be but not now.
    Congrats winners.

  8. Congrats, Rubynreba! I love outdoors just not when it's something adrenaline rising or sports-related.

  9. I love para gliding and I would definitely be up for bungee jumping.

  10. Congrats Rubynreba!
    Also congrats to Adam for being the comment winner!
    I was adventurous when I was younger and and I am still now if I can find the right friends to do the stuff. Hard to get our schedules to work out right for each of us.

  11. I must be the only horror lover... lol.
    Congrats to the winner!
    I am totally the adventurous type. There is not much I wouldn't at least try once.

  12. I tend not to be adventurous with outdoor activities.

  13. Thanks so much! I am not very adventurous now other than playing ball and at the park with the grandchildren.


Your comments are always appreciated!
