Booktube Recommendations

Every month, I’m going to promote three Booktube channels that I find very interesting. Today, I posted my first video on that, and you’ll see me being a bit silly. So, enjoy it!

The channels I recommended are:

They’re all very unique and entertaining channels. I really enjoy watching their videos. Also, they’re all relatively new. Peter Likes Books started shortly before I started doing Booktube videos. SamTheBookDragon is a bit older, and bedtimebookclub is quite new.

So, if you enjoy watching videos on books, these are highly recommended. Are there any you recommend? Let me know in the comments below.

Males Are the Minority in Booktube

I’ve spent quite a lot of time searching for new Booktube channels to follow and watch. But the more I search, the more I realise how few male Booktubers there are. It’s dominated by teenage girls and women in their twenties. But there are male Booktubers out there. I talk about that in this video.

I mentioned a couple big male Booktubers, Jesse the Reader and Benjamin of Tomes. But I also mention one of my favourites, Peter Likes Books.

There’s a playlist of male Booktubers compiled by Connor O’Brien. That’s a very useful resource, and hopefully I’ll be on it soon. Check it out and all of these Booktubers. And of course, watch my video!

Let me know what you think on the comments below. If you know of any male Booktubers, also leave a link!

The Big Booktubers

I’ve been writing a lot about Booktube, haven’t I? Don’t worry, this is just a phase. Well, I don’t intend on stopping making videos, but the blog posts will return to more text-based posts soon. I’m just exploring the world of Booktube and I want to share it with you.

I was searching for a list of the top Booktubers on YouTube, and I found a couple articles on Book Riot. The first gives you a background on what Booktube is and who some of the big Booktubers were back in 2014.

The second article is from this year, so it’s a more up-to-date list. And that’s what this is. It’s just a list of the top 22 Booktubers, which I was decided by the readers of Book Riot.

While I was searching for this information, I had an idea. Why not make a new Booktube series featuring some different Booktubers every week? And not just do this on YouTube, but also on the blog. What I mean to do is talk about the Booktubers on video and direct you to their channels. On the blog, I will show you their most popular Booktube video. I’ll tell you who they are and why I like them in the video. I was thinking I’d do three each time. One is a Booktuber with more than 5,000 subscribers, one with between 500 and 5,000, and one with fewer than 500.

What do you think? Do you like this idea? Any suggestions? Let me know in the comments below. And of course, subscribe to my channel!

Facebook Booktubers Group Is Now Live!

I’ve started the Booktubers Facebook group! It’s a closed group for now, so you need to request to join. To join, you should be one of the following:

  1. A Booktuber
  2. Someone interested in becoming a Booktuber
  3. A book lover who loves to watch Booktube videos

It’s a place where we can share our videos, talk about making videos (tips and tricks), and talk about books! Self-promotion is welcome and encouraged. The whole purpose is to share our videos, channels, and discuss books.

Here’s the video I made announcing the group on YouTube.

So, who’s interested in joining? Come and have some fun with us!

I Might Start a Facebook Booktube Group

I’ve searched and searched, but I can’t find one! I’m talking about a Facebook Booktubing group. Well, that’s not entirely true. I’ve found groups for Booktubers in Brazil, Mexico, and Uruguay, but none for Booktubing in general. I was a bit surprised. There are Booktuber lists on Twitter, but very little on Facebook.

So, I’m thinking about starting a group on Facebook where Booktubers can discover new Booktubers and share their videos. My thought is to keep it as a public group so anyone can join, including people who are just interested in watching the videos. However, I worry about people who join and spam the group. Maybe there should be an approval process? What do you think? Let me know in the comments below if you’d be interested in something like this and whether it should be public or private.

More Content on My YouTube Channel: Booktubing

Right now, on my YouTube channel, I have some travel videos, immigration videos, and other videos related to Japan. Coming soon: Booktubing. What is Booktubing? It’s a part of YouTube dedicated to books and reading.

Here’s a video by Little Book Owl describing how to be a Booktuber.

Some things I plan to do with Booktubing are book reviews, discussing new books I’ve received, and more.

Since I’m relatively new to Booktubing, I don’t actually know who the best Booktubers are. Do you have any recommendations about who to follow? Let me know in the comments below.
