Seriously-I love reading. You probably knew that already. Anyway, because of this I truly believe one of the best ways to learn about people is to ask their favorite book. That’s the reason I took the Ride or Die Book Tag over on YouTube today.
Things You May Not Know
You’ve come to expect some juicy behind-the-scenes information here on the blog when I post a video. OK, juicy probably isn’t the right word. Fun? Interesting? Weird? Whatever… let’s do this.
- I used to ask every student in every class I taught what their favorite book was on Day 1. If they didn’t have an answer to this question it was my goal to help them find one before the last day. Like I said, you can learn a lot about a person by what their favorite book is.
- I could probably redo this tag in a year and have different answers to most of the 10 questions. My bet? 3/10 would be the same. Anyone have a guess which 3 I think wouldn’t change?
- There are 12 total books mentioned in this video. 11/12 were books I rated 5 stars. The other one was 4 stars. This, of course, is not because it wasn’t as good. It’s basically because I think it has a slightly smaller intended audience. They’re all amazing. You could read your way through all 12 and, I bet, you’d learn so much about my tastes! Plus you’d probably love at least one of them, if not all 12.
- A question that was NOT on this list of questions (because it’s got a negative spin) but is fun to talk about anyway? What movie was actually BETTER than the book? Most bookish people will scoff at this question. I used to. But last year I found one. The Revenant. Sure, I’m probably biased for a lot of reasons. But… I think the movie was better.
- If you have a YouTube channel and you’d LOVE to be tagged in videos like this in the future, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I don’t do a lot of tags, but I’m always looking for new channels to support!
Here’s that video. Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel to show some love for my content. THANK YOU for being here. You’re awesome.
