Sharing Beyond Books #332 Comment Giveaway December 10, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week. Many noted that Pride & Prejudice seemed to lead the adaptation pack. Sue mentioned Sherlock Holmes which is another good one for spin offs. Alina suggested Shakespeare has a number of adaptations. There were five mentions of Beauty and the Beast, three of Cinderella, two of fairy tale re-tellings generally and five couldn't think of any others.


The Winner from SBB #331 comments is: #6 Fredamans 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 #332
(One Question.)

Nikki asks: When reading Hardcovers, do you remove the cover jackets first??
This question came at a good time as I just received two hardback books for review. I have not removed the cover jackets. I see that I will use them as a bookmark for part of the reading - near front and back - but I might need a real bookmark for the middle.
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. Nikki asks: When reading Hardcovers, do you remove the cover jackets 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 December 16, 2017 at 5 PM central.

  6. No I don't remove the cover jackets.

  7. If the dust cover keeps slipping I will take it off. Otherwise it does serve as a bookmark.
