Sharing Beyond Books #315 Comment Giveaway August 12, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Only 4 commenters acknowledge diluting products. Other means of saving are: 3 use budgets; 4 buy on sale/promo; several buy at dollar store; several buy in bulk or stock up essentials; a couple use coupons; one uses websites for savings; one cooks larger meals to freeze and one recommended spliting restaurant meals. I don't always split a meal at a restaurant but I often take half home for another meal.


The Winner from SBB #314 comments is: #9 Nikki 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 #315
(One Question.)

Elizabeth asks: How many US states have you visited??
I know some of our distant friends may not have visited the US at all and if you're willing I'm curious if you would compare your country in size to a US state.
I have been fortunate to visit 29 out of 50 states and one territory (the Virgin Islands) of six. As I listed the states I have visited I realize I need to visit the Midwest states - Montana, Dakotas, Wyoming- as I haven't been in those or surrounding states.

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. Elizabeth asks: How many US states have you visited??

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 19, 2017 at 5 PM central.
