Sharing Beyond Books #313 Comment Giveaway July 29, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Seven commenters believe in love at first sight and three are open to the idea. Five believe in instant attraction but that it takes time for true love to grow. One person does not believe in love at first sight.


The Winner from SBB #312 comments is: #7 RITA 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 #313
(One Question.)

My question asks: What cover images get you to look twice??
My eyes get caught by animals of many kinds: dogs, cats, horses, birds, and dragons for starters. Also, I take a second look at clockwork/cyber creations, space, planets and spaceships. I don't like 'bodice ripper' covers.

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.
The commenters for July were: Miki, MaryP, Poetryinleaves and Natalija. chose 1 so MIKI gets a GC.

Your turn to share. My question asks: What cover images get you to look twice??

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 August 5, 2017 at 5 PM central.


  1. Bodice ripper kind of covers always catch my eye because they represent a genre I love.

  2. Congrats Rita. Actually it's bright colors that grab my attention first. The second is a Scottish Highlander. Love them. :). But the cover doesn't matter if it's a book by one of my favorite Authors.

  3. Thank you Martha!

    I like covers with beach, mountain or lake scenery.

  4. I like the vintage look especially WWI and WW2 era dressing!

  5. animals for sure and this year since i lost my dog i seem to be bery attracted to cover with a dog in it.
    that aside i love whe magical elements are ina cover too

  6. Congrats to Rita!
    For me, the more real the cover the more it pulls me in. For example, a beautiful setting like a landscape shot, or a beautiful face or people doing something that people do everyday. Very rare to I like an ominous cover.

  7. Congrats Rita!
    A beautiful landscape and animals catch my interest, but some of the bodice ripper covers will catch my interest since I read that type of genre too.

  8. Just lately covers with paintings from Old Masters make me look twice. They could be portraits or landscapes. A lost art, so to speak.

  9. I like beautiful scenery pictures, animals, and vintage themes.

  10. I don't like bodice ripper covers either even tho I read mostly different sub genres of romance. I do like detail & a nice combination of colours, without being garish.

  11. I love bright and colourful covers which actually relate to the book.

  12. Landscapes, shiny covers, animals, lots of symbols!

  13. Definitely cute animals, interesting designs, and lovely covers.

  14. I like the Cozy Mystery covers they are so pretty.

  15. something that's not already another author's cover

  16. I don't like the bodice ripper covers either---but I really like covers with cats, dogs, or just about any kind of animal on them. I think the cozy mystery covers are almost always eye catching and cute.


Your comments are always appreciated!
