Sharing Beyond Books #350 Comment Giveaway August 11, 2018

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Fredamans ALWAYS finishes her books; four of us try to finish, especially review books; Becky will set aside a book after 3-4 chapters to try again later. Eight will dnf within several chapters, 100 pages or 20%. I can't fault their reasoning: There are too many books to read to get stuck in ones you aren't enjoying.
When this question was asked in 2013 there were 12 who would DNF and 8 who would rarely DNF. Those who answered then answered the same this time - I didn't note any changes. :-)

The Winner from SBB #349 comments is: #9 BN100 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 #350
(One Question.)

Ashfa asks: What time of day do you typically read/do you prefer to read??
I read all day so I cannot pick any certain time. I wake up and grab my phone to listen (after Bible reading) or a print book when I am reading one. I listen as I get ready for work. I listen to the Kindle in the car on the way to work. I take whichever medium (print, audio or Kindle) to the restroom to read during those visits. I listen on the way home and I listen as I get ready for bed. I also listen when in bed and if I wake up I listen for 10-15 minutes, setting the sleep timer.

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. Ashfa asks: What time of day do you typically read/do you prefer to read??

  1. Congrats, bn100!

    I mostly read before bed, but since I'm unable to remain awake in horizontal position for too long, I end up reading very little. I think I need to change when and where I read.

  2. Congrats bn! It was really cool to see this reading statistic.

    I read whenever I get the time, from a few pages in the morning to late at night when I should be sleeping :D

  3. I read whenever I can. My book is never far away.

  4. Usually at night when it's quiet and everything else is done

  5. I read at night before I go to sleep and whenever I have free time during the day.

  6. when i can i read all day but usually when i'm busy i read in the evening i cook, we eat then i rush to my book^^

  7. I read at different times throughout the day. Basically, any chance I can get.
    Congrats to the winner!

  8. Congrats BN100. Now that my kids have families of their own, I have all the time I need to read. And read I do, all day long. :)

  9. Congrats BN, I read whenever I can find the time.

  10. I read during the day when there is natural light. As I have gotten older I have a hard time seeing with only artificial light and all dark outside.

  11. Congrats BN100!
    I used to read just before bed, but now days it's when I have free time. I reading almost anytime during the day.

  12. I read whenever I can. It doesnt matter the time of day. I tend to ignore chores too when I want to read!

  13. I prefer reading at night :)

  14. I tend to read throughout the day, especially since I have ebooks and audiobooks on my phone, which is always with me. :)
