Sharing Beyond Books #430 Comment Giveaway September 18, 2021

Hello again, Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books.
Another two weeks flying by. It is starting to get darker as I leave the office (6:30pm)

Thanks to everyone who commented on the last question.
Last post SBB#429 Rubynreba asked: Did you watch the Summer Olympics? If so, what was your favorite event??
I found it interesting that 7 commenters didn't really watch (although two checked medal ratings) and 7 did. For those watching, 2 watched lots, and favs mentioned included: 4 mentioned gymnastics, 3 mentioned volleyball, 1 watched hockey. Also mentioned were diving, track and field, bmx, basketball, climbing, rowing, and archery.

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#429 comments is #3 BN100 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. -- [9-18-2021 I have added a new box and crossed off books no longer available through August 2021.]

Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.
WEEK #430
(One Question.)
Marjorie asks: What is your favourite place to visit on vacations?? (Expanded by my answer.)
Actually Elizabeth asked this question back in 2013 (SBB#99). So I thought I'd use it again to see if anyone has a) changed their answer or b) if vacations have been different due to Covid19 restrictions or c) anyone has a Dream Vacay they's like to share.
I would like to get a true vacation soon. We still love cruising and that is what hubby picks although I'm not sure if he would really go since he rarely goes out anymore. He is on oxygen full time now but could carry his portables for a trip.
More realistically we'd like to travel before year end to see our son and his family in Illinois.

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.
September questions were provided by Rubynreba and Marjorie.

Your turn to share. Marjorie asks: What is your favourite place to visit on vacations??

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, October 2, 2021, at 5 PM central.


  1. Congrats to the winner!

    I don't really take vacations, but if I did, it would be to see family is distant places.

  2. Pigeon Fordge, Dollywood is my favourite place to visit.

  3. I do love to visit The Sunshine Coast, QLD. Pristine beaches and family to visit.

  4. honestly i don't have a favourite place since i had no vacation in the last 12y if not longer

  5. Haven't been anywhere in more than 1.5 years now due to lockdowns. I do miss my foodie trips to nearby states.

    But also, it makes me long for overseas trips that are on my bucket list. Japan for instance. But not because of the Olympics.

  6. Now we don't travel due to the Covid. Before we mostly traveled to visit our family members. It's always a trip by plane, but we wouldn't mind going somewhere just the two of us.

  7. I traveled this summer and it was glorious. I came back from Lyon, France and it was amazing, it goes there in the top near London, UK.

  8. I love anywhere with a beach!

  9. I love going anywhere with mountains, waterfalls and woods!
