I am going to continue to post this event biweekly (every other week) for now. My work is so hectic that I appreciate the break every other weekend. Thank you for understanding and continuing to participate.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
9 of us choose interruptions as the top pet peeve; three mentioned damaged books (written in, dog-earred,etc), three mentioned lending books that didn't get returned, two mentioned running out of power on the reading devise. Sue doesn't want people telling her about the book before she finishes and Linda doesn't like people talking loudly on cell phones when she is reading in a public place.
The Winner from SBB #339 comments is: #4 Miki 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.
Becky asks: If you were to tell one person "Thank You" for helping me become the person I am today, who would it be and what did they do??
This isn't necessarily an easy question as I think of one person, then two, then another and so on. Although I could thank both my parents, I will say "Thank You" to my mother for providing boundaries but still allowing me to grow independently and for providing a life example of living with kindness and dignity.

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.
Questions this month were provided by Alina and Becky who each get $2.50 toward GC or 1/2 book credit for Becky.
Your turn to share. Becky asks: If you were to tell one person "Thank You" for helping me become the person I am today, who would it be and what did they do??
SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the Updated ARC and Other books, including the "Love" and Christmas titles all in one post.
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 April 7, 2018 at 5 PM central.
Has to be my mother. She taught me that I can do anything I set my mind to.ReplyDelete
My mother. A wonderful person who is the best role model another could haveReplyDelete
I have to go back to the start, so it would be my parents. Especially my Mom. By her example she taught me how to be strong, be a survivor and get through everyday. She let me know every single day how much I was loved and that alone gave me strength.ReplyDelete

Congrats to Miki!ReplyDelete
I would thank my good friend, Mike. 20 years ago I was lost with no direction, and he helped show me which way to turn. I will forever be grateful for him and that he is my friend.
mom - supportiveReplyDelete
THANK YOU A Lot!!ReplyDelete
and you sure deserve some time for your and your family so the biweekly method is fine no worries
one person....it's hard i think my mother...we weren't near when i was little but i admire the courage she had and she did all her best to help me fight for my dreams.
I’d probably thank one teacher from high school who belived in me more than I did myself. She was right and that helps me to remind myself that there is nothing I can’t do.
My parents instilled in me the values of hard work, honesty and kindness.ReplyDelete
Congrats winners . Who would I thank, my sister Joi, my best friend.ReplyDelete
Real life needs more of your attention, thanks for even doing it every 2 weeks!ReplyDelete
I don't know! I was influenced by a cousin in choosing my profession, by my mum and dad, by a lot of people and not only... I have no idea how to answer this.
I would have to say my mother, she was very supportive and taught me how to stand up for myself when I needed to.
I'd thank a boss at one of my first jobs after college that encouraged me to change the direction of my professional interest from accounting to the field of computers when they were just starting to be used in business offices.ReplyDelete
My dad, who has had to support me so much for so long in my life
