Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and I shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else we’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books we plan on reading in the coming week.

Meanwhile, in Amanda’s World
- I learned how to find the feed for specific labels in Blogger, so my Facebook page and Twitter account should be set up to post the links to my GLA reviews with Kelly. *finger guns*
- Last week, I added a disclaimer to my footer about being an Amazon associate. This week, I added to that by including links to Kelly’s and my Amazon astores. If you’re already buying books, help support us. Any money I receive will go back into the blog.
- Due to a photo I posted on my blog’s Facebook page, I decided to change the settings of the page to be 18+. This knocked a few people off my page. If it was you, I’M SORRY. I was trying to be responsible and not get in trouble by posting graphic conversations.
- I’ve been trying to be more active on my Facebook page. I still can’t decide if it’s a useful promotional tool or just another way for me to waste time.
- Tomorrow, I’ve got a newsletter coming out about grammar tricks AND my article for November 1st is all about websites and making yours the best it can be. Want to make sure you get in on the action? Sign up to receive the newsletter!
- I sent out a newsletter to the Midwestern book bloggers on Friday. I have reposted the information on our website. Even if you aren’t in the Midwest, please help me spread the word and my plea for help. I want to get the site up and functioning, but I can’t do it without help. And I need a lot of help. (Come on, now. No jokes. I’m serious.)
