Sharing Beyond Books #429 Comment Giveaway September 4, 2021

Hello again, Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books.
Where did the last two weeks go?

Thanks to everyone who commented on the last question.
Last post SBB#428 AlyP asked: What book did you use to love when you first read it and after a reread you couldn't believe you actually liked it??
4 commenters didn't have any bad experience on re-reading; 5 have re-read, two only reading books they like and three have experienced changed, negative response. 3 commenters don't re-read.

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#428 comments is #6 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. -- [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 #429
(One Question.)
Rubynreba asks: Did you watch the Summer Olympics? If so, what was your favorite event??
I'm sad to say I did not really watch any of the Summer Olympics. I did see a few short videos on Facebook and watched some of the paralympics on Facebook too. I was excited to see winners like Tamyra Mensah-Stock (second U.S. woman to win Olympic wrestling gold). I actually enjoy track and field but we never put on NBC.

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.

Your turn to share. Rubynreba asks: Did you watch the Summer Olympics? If so, what was your favorite event??
