Sharing Beyond Books #359 Comment Giveaway December 29, 2018

Hello again and Welcome back to the last Sharing Beyond Books, SBB, of 2018.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Nine commenters say "no" to FB and 5 more say it is not necessary to follow on FB but 3 of those find advantages to following on FB, One finds it a good idea, while four are following favorite authors on FB. Several prefer newsletters and some like to follow on instagram (see cute kitty pics) and on twitter.

The Winner from SBB #358 comments is: #11 MaryP 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. -- [12/15/18 I am pulling out some new Christmas and Love titles to add to the Win box choices. I had to move the books due to the water threat in office. I will dig them out again soon.]

**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 #359
(One Question.)

MaryP asks: Do you have a favorite childhood book that you have re-read as an adult??
I don't often re-read (except when reading with the grandchildren). However I do have some childhood books (before age 10) that come to mind for re-reading. These will age me because they are books popular in the 1950s. These include: Black Beauty; Smokey, a Cow Horse; Charlotte's Web; Aesop's Fables; The Little Prince; The Just So Stories and Winnie the Pooh.
[Perhaps another day we can share books we read ages 10-18; and then books read in college.]

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.
Credit for questions shared in December go to NIKKI, MIKI and MARYP. Thank you.

Your turn to share. MaryP asks: Do you have a favorite childhood book that you have re-read as an adult??

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 January 12, 2019 at 5 PM central.


  1. Hmm, it's hard for me to pinpoint one from early childhood days, but one I try to reread in some form every year from younger years is A Christmas Carol. Some versions are better than others, but there's just something about the story that captured my heart. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sadly, I haven't reread any books from my childhood. I guess I'll have to do that in 2019.

    Happy New Year!

  3. No. I rarely reread books (so many books!)

  4. Congrats Mary. A few for me were Heidi, Old Yeller, and Black Beauty. Happy New Year !

  5. Congrats to Mary!
    I recently re-read a pubescent favorite of mine, Anne of Green Gables. I have read it many times over the years, and each time is as magical as the last.

  6. hum i did reread quo vadis to see if my view on it changed

  7. I reread Alice in Wonderland as an adult---and found it to be totally different than what I remembered.

  8. THANK YOU!!

    Sarah, Plain and Tall comes to mind. It's a beautiful story.

  9. Congrats MaryP!
    I remember re-reading Black Beauty, Charlotte's Web, Black Stallion and Nancy Drew's mysteries.

  10. Little Woman has been a favourite of mine and I have reread it as an adult.

  11. Happy new year!

    I've reread Harry Potter(I started them in 3rd grade) and I still love them :)

  12. I love rereading Enid Blyton's books!!

  13. I have not reread any of the books.

  14. Does Harry Potter count? I was a teen when I first read it. Otherwise, have not reread any since my childhood reads were really childish.


Your comments are always appreciated!
