Some Book Channels to Watch

Interested in watching videos about books on YouTube? Well, I have some recommendations. I do this every month, so expect to see one of these videos every month.

This time, I have channels called Connor O’Brien, Cherrie Walker, and TurnThePage. Check out the video and the channels. You can click on the info cards (the i in the top right corner) to go to their channels.

I hope you enjoy them!

Authors Answer 6, the Video Edition – Writing Mistakes

In my continued bid to revise my old answers and put them on video, I present to you Authors Answer 6. The original question was:

Which mistake or bad habit in writing is the most difficult for you to stop doing?

My answer is mostly the same, but I elaborate more on it. Check it out.

Did you enjoy the thumbnail image at the beginning?

Let me know what problems you have when writing in the comments section below.

#BlackLivesMatter and Booktube

In the Booktube community on YouTube, there was a question asked by a Booktuber, LuLo Fangirl, about why Booktubers don’t talk about #BlackLivesMatter. Why is everyone silent about it? They talk about drama that goes on in the community, but don’t talk about this big issue. I decided to respond, though I don’t think I could eloquently explain what I really wanted to say. But this is what I said.

I linked the situation with books. I think that books bring up issues like this, and it’s worth reading them. What I wanted to say but didn’t want to take up so much time is that I thought education, or rather a lack of good education, was a root cause of this problem. There are so many areas in the US where black people are marginalised, and some education could help. I mean educating everyone.

What do you think about this topic? Let me know in the comments below.

A Month on Booktube!

Well, my big experiment is going pretty well. I think I’m getting better at speaking in front of a camera. I’ve found it surprisingly easy to make and edit a video within half an hour or so. Sometimes, the biggest wait is just the video compiling on my computer.

I made a video about my first month on Booktube. It’s been an adventure, one that I see going on for a long time. So, check out my reflection on my first month on Booktube!

Some things I hope to improve are my editing, thumbnails, and adding end cards when the new end card annotation feature is public. I can’t wait to use that!

Anyway, let me know what you thought of the video. Thanks!

Merging Books and YouTube – I’m Booktubing!

Well, I did it. I did what I said I’d do. I’m booktubing!

There’s a Booktube Newbie Tag where new booktubers make videos answering ten questions about themselves and books. Here’s mine.

I hope you enjoyed that. Maybe you learned something new about me. Did you?

Well, I’ve been thinking about a few things I can do in video format, and I have some ideas. First, I’m going to read the A to Z Challenge I did last year in video format. We’ll see how that goes. Second, I’m bringing Authors Answer to video form! I’ll be talking about my answer and expanding on it. But I’m going all the way back to the first question. Maybe some other booktubers will take up the challenge and answer the questions themselves. Wouldn’t that be interesting?

My next video is likely to be about my newest books, known as a book haul video. They tend to be popular among booktubers.

Are there any booktubers out there reading this? If you are, let me know and leave a comment with your YouTube channel.
