I’ve written a few blog posts about books here at Blacksburg Belle, because I’m a diehard bookworm.
It’s been a big part of who I am every since I forced my Grandpa to read Once Upon a Potty to me 207 times while we were on vacation when I was two.
My mom distinctly remembers him looking up from the book around number 47 and saying, “Dammit Sandy, who the hell writes a book about going to the bathroom?” I didn’t get flustered by his annoyance. I kept pushing the book back into his hands over and over, asking for “one more p-ease.”
Nowadays, I typically read five or more novels and/or nonfiction books each month.
I’ve wanted to write a lot more blog posts about the books I read. Like a lot, a lot.
But, this isn’t the place to post weekly book-related content, so drumroll on your knees please…
I started a BookTube channel. That’s a fancy way of saying I started a YouTube channel all about what I’m reading.
Oh yeah. Shake your tail feathers! Shake your tail feathers!
(Now that my health has mostly gotten better–more on that to come later–I have the energy to put into this new project. YAY!)
I also plan to vlog my fiction writing (and hopefully publishing) process.
I created the channel three weeks ago and have already uploaded seven videos, including a 55-minute reading vlog. Whoop whoop!
Most of the videos have bloopers at the end because why wouldn’t I share myself hitting my head on my chandelier or my nerdy dance moves?
I’ll very seldom mention my BookTube channel here at Blacksburg Belle (after this blog post!), so I thought I’d make a big announcement (that’s what this is if you couldn’t tell) for those of you who’d like to subscribe and follow along.
If you’re a reader and would love to chat about the books I’m reading and the books you’re reading, please hit the subscribe button (along with the bell–to receive notifications) right here.
Check out my most recent video where I describe what I’m reading in September and let me know what you’re planning to read this month.
I’d love to know. (As you’ll see from watching this video, I get a tad excited about talking about books…it’s not normal but I’m a self-proclaimed book nerd. Someone who forces another human to read Once Upon a Potty more than 200 times and then shares that in a public place willingly probably isn’t normal. But, hey, who wants to be normal anyways…that’s so dull?!)
If you’re not into reading fiction, things will be back to regularly scheduled programming next week. See you then.
