“We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow.”Yellow sand? Who peed on the beach?***Because the complaint mentioned a supposed mistake in a brochure, this brings up the topic of making sure you're as correct as you can be before writing down anything.

Around the Globe With Tricia Skinner

So, this morning, I pick up this week's feisty guest author and we're off to sunny Ochos Rios, Jamaica. We're lounging on the beach with a plate of fried breadfruit between us.

There are rocky beaches but they would have complained about…See More

You know, it's three in the morning and there is nothing on television and I'm bored with watching downloaded television shows or movies. I long for either a salty snack or something sweet.

Welcome! I just wanted to introduce myself, and my blog, The Book Buff: Book Reviews for Regular People. Check it out at http://www.thebookbuff.blogspot.com

There is always a giveaway going on at The Book Buff, click on the book title for more info:

The Aristobrats by best selling author Jennifer Solow (YA)
The Island (audiobook) by New York Times best seller Elin Hilderbrand (Women's Contemporary Fiction)
Texas Roads by Cathy Bryant (Christian Fiction/Romance)

It can be a bit overwhelming around here at first, so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
