Sharing Beyond Books #354 Comment Giveaway October 6, 2018

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
I liked learning what each of you like about your favorite genres. Fantasy readers mentioned the world building, escapism and possibilities. Historical fans mentioned liking history (of course) and different times. Mystery fans liked suspense and contemporary fans mentioned realism. BN100 mentioned good writing which would apply to any genre. :-)

The Winner from SBB #353 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.

WEEK #354
(One Question.)

Alina asks: What destination/city/museum would you want to see at least once in your life??
I had to think about this question. I have been blessed to have traveled a bit and have seen many wonderful, beautiful places. I have been to good museums in Philadelphia, New York and Washington, DC including the Smithsonian.  We have visited the Ark, the Grand Canyon, Gettysburg, some castles in Europe and special places in Hawaii and Alaska - just to mention a few. I thought maybe there is a special library I would like to visit. And I would like to see Jerusalem in my after life if not during my life.
At this point my husband and I would like to visit quiet places: small town America and places like the state park where we spent a night over our last trip: Lake Lurleen, AL.

These are photos I took of our campsite.

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. Alina asks: What destination/city/museum would you want to see at least once in your life??

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.
