Sharing Beyond Books #355 Comment Giveaway November 3, 2018

Hello again and Welcome back to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB after a month away!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Commenters shared lots of wonderful places to visit: beautiful libraries, Paris, Hobbiton, Rio, Nazaré in Portugal, Alaskan cruise, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Egypt and the aurora borealis! Two mentioned New Orleans and Ireland and three mentioned special museums.

The Winner from SBB #354 comments is: #12 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 #355
(One Question.)

This is an older question from Elizabeth: Have you started Christmas shopping, yet??
I used to shop all year long but that has not happened lately. I did find some outfits for the kids earlier this summer. And actually - we never celebrated Christmas with our kids last year so I have a stack ready to wrap. LOL.

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.
Alina provided the question in October and gets $2.50 Credit.

Your turn to share. Elizabeth asks: Have you started Christmas shopping, yet??

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 November 17, 2018 at 5 PM central.


  1. I do tend to shop all year long. It's more fun that way.

  2. No, but my family is small so not a lot of shopping to do

  3. yes i have, the handmade crafting though not yet so i'm far from ready

  4. Definitely shopping already. Health conditions call for shopping in small bites,so I began while away travelling to be ahead of the usual rush!

    * Congrats to Freda *

  5. I haven't. I have always ended up shopping late the last few years due to certain events in my life. But I will start sometime next week.

  6. Thank you so much!! I filled in the form!
    I already have one present for my mom. I went to the mum show and saw something there that had her name written all over it, figuratively. It's already wrapped too. :-)

  7. No, I haven't started shopping yet.

  8. I only have a couple gifts to buy since I have a very small family---so I haven't even thought about it yet.

  9. I usually do all my Christmas shopping in December.

  10. I don't celebrate Christmas so nope 😁

  11. Congrats Freda.
    I have not started yet. Everyone wants gift cards so I will not have much shopping to do this year.

  12. I shop all year round. I'm hoping to cut back this year and remember more that Jesus is the reason for the season!!

  13. I haven't started yet, but I should... But I am going in December to a Christmas market, I hope to finish rth shopping till then

  14. I tend to shop throughout the year for gifts!

  15. Congrats Fredamans!
    No, I haven't. I used to shop throughout the year, but I don't anymore.
