Hello again, Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books.
Hello October – the dark, spooky month.
Thanks to everyone who commented on the last question.
Last post SBB#430 Marjorie asked: What is your favourite place to visit on vacations?? (Expanded by my answer to include: a) If anyone changed their answer from 2013 or b) if vacations have been different due to Covid19 restrictions or c) anyone has a Dream Vacay they’d like to share. )
2 commenters haven’t traveled due to Covid lockdowns; 2 have no favorite vacation place, one of whom hasn’t vacationed in 12 years. One doesn’t vacation but visits family. Another 3 named specific locations while one said crusing, one said any beach and another said any mountain with waterfall and woods.
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#430 comments is #8 NATALIJA 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.
Fredamans asks: What is one book that has impacted you since the moment you closed it?
I have to say the Bible — but I don’t keep it closed.
This year I find myself thinking about The Iron Triangle. I have shared it several times with others reading in the same vein.
The images below show how one book can have an impact on its surroundings. 🙂
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. Fredamans asks: What is one book that has impacted you since the moment you closed 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.
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 16, 2021, at 5 PM central.
