Sharing Beyond Books #450 Comment Giveaway September 17, 2022

Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books. (Note - I am going to continue to post monthly now, probably through the end of the year. This one runs through October 15, 2022.)

Thanks to everyone who commented on the last question.
Last post SBB#449 SCATTERED LEAVES asked: What’s your favorite pie??
We only had five commenters in addition to me. Two people named apple pie and two named pumpkin pie. The other pies named were: coconut cream pie (reminded me of my honeymoon), strawberry/rhubarb, cherry, and pecan.

The Winner from SBB#449 comments is #3 ELAINE 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 #450
(One Question.)
Marjorie asks: Do you still mask going shopping even though you do not have too??
No. Our state opened up around October 2020. I didn't start going out in crowds for over a year as we were mindful of my husband's health. Over the past year I have probably worn my mask about 4 times. Twice when the activity requested it and twice the week following my quarantine from my second bout with Covid and I was out in public.  (I will say it drove me crazy when people were wearing their masks below their nose.)

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 question was provided by MARJORIE who gets a GC credit.

Your turn to share.
Marjorie asks: Do you still mask going shopping even though you do not have too??
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:

Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.
THE deadline is a month, until Octboer 15.

I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made through Saturday, October 15, 2022, at 5 PM central.


  1. Yes I do, as do most people where I am. It's not a big inconvenience.

  2. Congrats to Elaine!
    I only mask now if I feel off, mainly because I am immuno-compromised. However, I have had 4 shots, so I feel safer than most.

  3. My doctor offfices still require it here, so I oblige. Otherwise I never wear it.

  4. Thank you..
    I mask everywhere I go.

  5. here it still mandatory in doctor office, hospital and pharmacy, i still wear one if i'm not feeling well or if the shop is too crowded (in train for example) better safe than sorry

  6. I only remove it if I'm eating/drinking. Still way too many cases to take things for granted here.


Your comments are always appreciated!
