Sharing Beyond Books #376 Comment Giveaway August 24, 2019

Hello again and Welcome back to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
I was surprised none of the 12 commenters traveled to a book location although Natalija has visited Italy and Rubynreba has visited Amish Communities. Places that responders would like to visit include: Scotland, Hobbit dwellings in the UK, Prince Edward Island, and The Lord of the Rings setting in New Zealand.

The Winner from SBB #375 comments is: #10 ASHFA 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 #376
(One Question.)

Nikki asks: Is there a food you absolutely would not, willing to pay NOT to eat??
When I was young I probably would've said cottage cheese, but I have learned to eat that. Now I would say a food I don't want to eat is sardines or any oily, fishy fish. I'm okay with 'white' fish like talapia, mahi mahi and others etc. and I actually love most shell fish. I will even eat octopus, calamari and squid. But, if it smells fishy -- No Thanks.

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 1/2 book choice or $2.50 towards 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.
Thanks go to St. James and Nikki for August Questions. They each get $2.50 credit.

Your turn to share. Nikki asks: Is there a food you absolutely would not, willing to pay NOT to eat??

I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made through Saturday September 7, 2019 at 5 PM central.


  1. I have to agree with Martha that fishy fishes are the worst. I'm very choosy when it comes to seafood, and anything with a stronger smell is off limits.

  2. There is a very, very, very long list I things I will not eat. One reason that I'd rather cook for myself than eat out.

  3. Fun questions! And those book locations would be beautiful to visit. I'm not a big fish eater myself and I won't eat squid or octopus ever. I mainly stick with talapia, tuna or cod.
    Enjoy your week ahead!

  4. Durian fruit. Stinky one but considered a delicacy and expensive to boot.

  5. I'm a vegetarian, so there are a lot of things I will not eat but even if I weren't one I would draw the line on bugs.

  6. I'd try anything once.
    Congrats to the winner!

  7. Congrats Ashfa. I would never eat octopus or squid. No thanks.

  8. Thank you so much for the win!
    I hate prawns!! Not much of a seafood fan too

  9. seafood since i'm allergic too but since we got to speak about past a bit this weekend with relatives i can add....CATs ( no we don't eat cat here but in the 1950 some were stealing cat to eat them)

  10. I hate peas and liver, I enjoy all seafood but not mussels . Congrats to all the winners.

  11. No No No to anything with bugs.

  12. Congrats Ashfa!
    I don't care for the fishy fish either, but I also don't like okra. I tried it and still don't like it. I also don't like chitterlings either.

  13. Bugs, cats, dogs, snakes... I don't think there's much I won't try/
