Sharing Beyond Books #428 Comment Giveaway August 21, 2021

Hello again, Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books.

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Last post SBB#427 Bn100 asked: What do you think about authors that decide to offer free ebooks on Amazon Kindle for a very limited time and during hours where readers are usually asleep (1-3 AM)?
6 commenters didn't know of this happening and several aren't effected by it. 3 others are not up late although one might be up but has no kindle. 3 think internationals might catch the sale, 2 do not have Kindle, and then there are several who have picked up titles on sale (though not necessarily in middle of night).

For US participants: I need to update and refill the books available to US winners. I have used "Love" and "Christmas" titles as well as ARC titles. Since the supply is lower, I have author collections I could choose from, mostly romance - historical, suspense and some contemporary. What genres/books/authors would you like me to include?

The Winner from SBB#427 comments is #4 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. -- [11/16/19 I plan to add some review books this week and maybe some new Christmas and Love titles as soon as I locate the box I put them in. 11/28/20 I have added a box of new books for SBB and will list them in the next week or so. I have to try to cross off books that have already been awarded.]

Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.

WEEK #428
(One Question.)
AlyP asks: What book did you use to love when you first read it and after a reread you couldn't believe you actually liked it??
I rarely reread and the few I have, I still enjoyed so I can't think of a book I haven't liked on reread.

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 them.

August questions provided by BN100 and ALYP who get half a book or $2.50 if international.

Your turn to share. AlyP asks: What book did you use to love when you first read it and after a reread you couldn't believe you actually liked it??

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, September 4, 2021, at 5 PM central.


  1. I can't think of any. There have been several I enjoyed and years later, on re-reading it I felt it was 'meh' but I reckon it's because my taste has changed a bit over the years.

  2. Thank you for the great win! I appreciate you!
    I cannot think of a single reread I disliked or felt differently about.

  3. I do not remember rereading any books only as a child.

  4. I re-read quite a lot actually, but only ever books I know I will love.

  5. In general, I do re read often and not always books withstand the test of time. I had a negative experience with Karen Robard's book. The second time around I was very bothered by the cheating element of the story. It's possible that when I was younger I was more forgiving :)

  6. Congrats Fredamans. I only reread books I like though so it's never happened before.

  7. I'm asking because it happened to me once :) I reread a historical romance, I can't remember the name, and on the reread I couldn't believe it was so bad and that I liked it so much the 1st time...

  8. I don’t remember specific titles, but I’ve read some books again and not enjoyed the same way, especially when reading years later.


Your comments are always appreciated!
