Sharing Beyond Books #310 Comment Giveaway July 8, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Four commenters have stopped reading an author due to rude comments/behavior and five more think it could happen as they wouldn't like rude behavior. Eight commenters have not had this happen, four of whom feel they don't follow authors enough to be aware of rude comments. A couple of the eight also feel that they would allow the freedom of speech to the authors.


The Winner from SBB #309 comments is: #13 Marjorie 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 #310
(One Question.)

MaryP asks: If you were given a million dollars what would you buy first??
I don't have something I want to "buy" that I can think of. If I had a large sum of money I would want to set up a foundation to give or lend money to those in need of a helping hand and who demonstrate willingness to work or respect a gift and use it for a good purpose.
Memes, Wshh, and 🤖: Behind that door is $1 million dollars is
 All you have to do is go through the door
 What you going to do?
 (one rule: no weapons)
Behind that door is $1 million Dollars 💰 All you have to do is go through the door 🚪and that money is all yours 😬 what are you going to do? 🤔 (one rule: no weapons) 🐍 WSHH

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. MaryP asks: If you were given a million dollars what would you buy first??

SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the Updated ARC and Other books, including the "Love" and Christmas titles all in one post.

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 July 15, 2017 at 5 PM central.


  1. I would be a liar if I said I wouldnt welcome that money! My three children would be the first beneficiaries but I would dearly like to expand on an orphanage in the Mannar district in Sri Lanka. Nuns there do yeoman work under very trying circumstances.

  2. A million dollars would go a long way in helping out others that's for sure. I'd settle the mortgage too.

  3. Thank you so much for the win.
    If I had a million I would pay off my daughters mortgage and I would buy a new house.

  4. Congrats Marjorie. I would share with my seven children to give them piece of mind. For me I'd like to buy a small cottage.

  5. If I won a million dollars I'd try to talk my hubby into traveling south for the winter and buying a second home where it's warm.

  6. I wouldn't buy anything. I'd pay my debts and save.
    Congrats to Marjorie!

  7. I would pay off my son's house and buy my daughter a house.

  8. right now i would love that to pay for all teh reparations in teh house ( then some gifts for loyals friends)

  9. Definitely a house. We are renting an appartment at the moment and that's not very fun.

  10. In all honesty I'm not sure. Might actually use the money to pay for renovations to the house.

  11. I would buy new homes for my grown children, new cars for the grandchildren who can drive, some for each grandchild for college education, and a big donation to our church!

  12. Congrats Marjorie!
    I would pay off a couple bills, give my brother some of it and give a couple foundations some and probably either invest some of it or put it in a saving account to give to my family at a later date.
