Happy Sunday. I am the (book) supplier and this is my Sunday #bookstack for the week of December 9, 2012
So it’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a bookstack. It’s the end of the semester, which is always a crazy time. I’ve read 184 books toward my 200, and I think I’m going to make it this year, which is exciting. I also have one paper and one presentation, and grading my grad students’ assignments left for this semester. So the stack is going to be quick.
I actually have three books in my stack, all three of which I’ve started already. The audiobook is Brusier by Neal Shusterman, a story about an empath told from four different perspectives. It’s been a while since I’ve read it, so listening to it is pretty nice.
Second in my stack is Realm of Possibility by David Levithan. I’ve been working on this for a couple of weeks and have come to realize that I like reading paper books more than I like reading ebooks, unless they’re books that I’ve already read — so basically I feel very much the same way about ebooks that I do about audiobooks.
Last is Parallel Visions by Cheryl Rainfield. It’s also an ebook. Cheryl sent me a message on Twitter and asked me to review it for her, and while I don’t usually do reviews, I told her I would because I enjoyed her other two books, Hunted and Scars. So I committed to posting my review on Amazon and Goodreads, but I’ll also do a video blog about it as well.
[This Week on the (book) supplier]
I’ve decided that I’m going to cut back on the book talks until summer rolls around. It’s been difficult to keep up with the book talks and Feature Shelf and prepping for my new video project, which I’ll talk more about when the semester ends. So on Tuesday, I’m going to depart from usual book talking and post a video about Nerd Shirts, a tag that Liz over at elizziebooks did. It was entertaining and different, and I wouldn’t mind doing a video about something else once in a while.
On Thursday, in honor of Crash Course English Literature’s discussion of Romeo & Juliet, I’m doing the Romeo & Juliet in YA edition of Feature Shelf. This will be the last Feature Shelf of the year, since the semester’s almost over and I’m working on this new project. Which I’m really excited about. And I want to post the introduction to it in the next week or so. And I really want to tell you about it, but promised myself that I wouldn’t. Argh.
Anyway, that’s it for me today. I’d like to sign off by reminding you that if you’ve got comments about what I’m reading, or about books in general, or you’d like to request an edition of Feature Shelf, you can do that by leaving me a comment here on Youtube, or on Facebook, Twitter or Google+, or through the contact page at http://thebooksupplier.com.
I hope you have a great week. I’ll see you on Tuesday for a video about Nerd Shirts, and on Thursday for the Romeo & Juliet edition of Feature Shelf. I am the (book) supplier wishing you happy reading. Don’t forget to be awesome.
