Sharing Beyond Books #316 Comment Giveaway August 19, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Six of our friends who live abroad have never been to US. Several of our Canadian friends have visited several states. Commenters have visited a range of states from as few as 3 to as many as 30.
Natalija advised that Italy is the size of Arizona. MaryP notes that Australia is nearly the same size as continental USA. Nikki's country has 13 states and she has only been to half.


The Winner from SBB #315 comments is: #15 Elizabeth 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 #316
(One Question.)

Becky asks: Do you enjoy to landscape and have something beautiful to look at when taking breaks from reading or working??
I do enjoy working with the flowers and yard although I have limited time. Many years ago I even had Bonsai's that I loved. In cool weather I might sit outside to read but I don't enjoy being out in the heat of summer months.

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. Becky asks: Do you enjoy to landscape and have something beautiful to look at when taking breaks from reading or working??

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

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 26, 2017 at 5 PM central.


  1. I live in a town known for it's beautiful parks and gardens. I do enjoy taking a break and going for a walk.

  2. I love landscapes. The beauty has such a calming & relaxing feel to it. I don't spend a lot of time outside in very hot and humid weather due to COPD .

  4. I love trying to beautify my yard----sometimes things work, sometimes they don't. I like to plant things that attract wildlife so I can watch them too.

  5. i love watching the birds coming to feed in my garden

  6. I love working in the garden but it has been too hot lately to enjoy it.

  7. I can see the Julian Alps from my kitchen window and I enjoy watching them because due to the clouds scenery changes very often.

  8. Congrats to Elizabeth!
    I do love admiring landscapes but rarely get a chance to anymore.

  9. I love landscapes and all things nature but a green thumb I do not have unfortunately.

  10. Thanks! :)
    I love being outside in nature, especially when there's sunshine!

  11. I have a high hill with old trees behind my house and enjoy the deer,wild turkeys and birds.

  12. Congrats Elizabeth!

    I love landscapes! But I don't live in the countryside so there's not a lot of greenery here in the city. When taking breaks I watch a bit of TV, do some chores, or listen to some music.

  13. Congrats Elizabeth!
    I do love looking at the landscape, especially if the wildlife is being active if not to hot or cold at the time.

  14. I grow a lot of flowers in my flower gardens. We live in a small town and received Yard of the Week recently so we were proud of this!! I also enjoy vacations to the mountains and love the scenery.
