The TBR List: September 6

This week's TBR List is brought to you by my pet elephant.

- A 50 Shades of Grey movie is happening — deal with it. Here's who's starring in the film.

- I taste-tested some instant coffees. Are you surprised to learn that the Starbucks variety was the worst?

- Brace yourselves: Book Riot has created a Margaret Atwood reading flowchart. Her new novel, MaddAddam, came out this week.

- Kindle + Goodreads = duh.

- Could it be? The custom of tipping may be going the way of the dinosaur.

- Some environmentally-minded individuals are wondering whether Amazon's MatchBook service, which offers cheap digital copies with physical book purchases, is actually a bad thing.

- With PayPal mobile, you can order your meal ahead at 1,000 restaurants. Useful? Maybe. Experience killer? Definitely.

- Your favorite book has a color signature and it is beautiful.

- Archana Ram of my soCal'd life kindly featured me on her blog last week. Check out the post for thoughts on my habits.
