Do You YouTube? | Book Blogger Hop

I usually do these on Saturdays, but I was distracted by the weeds in my backyard. So I’m jumping in on Book Blogger Hop (hosted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer). This week, the question was submitted by Billy.

Do you have a YouTube channel? If so, do you post book review vlogs?

I do have a YouTube channel. I’ve had it for quite some time, actually. It started as a way to engage my students with books. I got tired of giving the same book talk four times in a class period. This one is probably my most popular, which really surprises me. It’s from 7 years ago.

And then I started doing book recommendation videos for them.

And then I was convinced by my principal at the time to write create a music video for them. Le sigh. The things I did for my students.

Every now and again I do book reviews, but not as often as I’d like. Most of the time, they just end up on Instagram.

Mostly, I talk about what I’mgoing to read for the week, or what I’m challenging myself to read in a particular month. Like this one.

Do you booktube? If you do, drop me a link in the comments and I’ll check yours out.

  1. I wish I did, but to be honest…booktube kind of scares me. The thought of recording myself is somewhat terrifying, lol. I think it’s really cool that you started out with videos for your students.


    1. The thought of recording myself was terrifying at first, too. It was just me and my camera in my home library, and I’d sweat up a storm. At this point, I just turn my phone on and go. It gets easier. I’ve mostly moved from YouTube videos to Instagram videos (and cross posting). I figure I can handle 60 seconds in my crazy busy life.


  2. I used to havea YouTube channel, but I mostly posted random videos and music. I didn’t do booktube, though I’ve considered it recently. I probably won’t just because of my weirdness with posting photos of myself. I always enjoy your videos! 🙂
