This new video is not much, but since I didn't upload anything on Sunday (because I was recording some songs with my band) I felt I couldn't get away with skipping Wednesday, too. So here's a very quick little update on what I'm currently reading, short-term plans for my channel and books I want to buy.
A while ago, the lovely Mary from Books and Cookies Booktalk uploaded a video in which she addressed the issue of readers looking down on people who don't read. It may sound silly, but this is a real thing! She did a great job and for some reason her video really struck a chord with me. I decided to chime in on this discussion by addressing a related, but slightly different issue: some readers feel superior to other readers based on petty stuff like the genre they read or the way they treat their books. I'm very happy with how this video turned out and I hope you like it, too! As always, I'd love it if you leave a comment. Let's keep this discussion going!
My new video is here! Over two months ago, I was tagged by Veronica from Bookish Best Friends to do the Poetry Challenge, and I finally recorded it. The rules of the challenge are to write a down a series of numbers (day, month and year of your birthday + the first two and last two digits of your phone number), flick to those pages in a book of your choosing, and write down the first line on each of those pages. Then, using only the words from those sentences and nothing else, you create a poem. Now, I know that I'm not very good at converting sentences into other sentences, so I decided to write every word down on a scrap of paper and create a poem using the fridge magnet poetry method (which, strangely, is something that I'm very good at). Anyway, take a look at the video to see how the poem turned out - I hope you like it!
Every time I gain another 100 subscibers, I make a little special video. For the first 100, it was a blooper reel. For 200, I hosted a Book Depository giveaway. And now, for 300, I made a Q&A video! Please take a moment to check it out and, as always, feel free to leave a comment. A big thank you to all my subscribers, especially the ones who submitted questions for this video!
I read an extremely random collection of books over the course of April. And even though there were some days on which I lacked motivation (see my blog post on that), I still did pretty well. If you have any thoughts on any of the books I read, I would love for you to leave them in the comment section of this video. Interacting with fellow bookworms is one of the greatest things about booktube!
