AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE: I'm still a little behind in my Google Reader from my trip, so you can expect some more great blog highlights next week!!

  • J. Kaye's Book Blog had a great conversation regarding the latest FTC ruling and how it applies to book bloggers. It has made me do some thinking and I may or may not be making changes here at Tif Talks Books. I will keep you posted on what I decide!


  • I participated in My Friend Amy's Fall Festival Recipe Exchange by including three of my family faves!! Have you tried one of them yet?
  • I shared a little bit of information about myself in Tif's ABC's, a fun little meme that was passed on to me by Alexia's Books and Such.
  • I traveled out to Salt Lake City, Utah to visit my Grandfather after his surgery last week. In my post, Leaving On A Jet Plane, I listed the books I took with me along the way. I ended up finishing two of them and starting a third. Reviews will be on their way soon!!
  • I'm excited to announce that I will be reviewing a bookcase from CSN Furniture and Herman Miller in the near future!! I can't wait!!
  • I've got another trip planned this next week and am looking for those interested in possibly guest posting here at Tif Talks Books. I've already got one author lined up and cannot wait to share her with you! If you are interested in writing something yourself, please contact me! And, just for the record, this can be at any time . . . not just while I am traveling!!
  • One final update: I've added some more ways for my readers to follow me, including email subscriptions, subscriptions in a reader, or through Google Follow. In addition, I added a new Contact Me button on the menu bar. More changes will slowly be coming and I will keep you posted as these go into effect!
