What are some good non-YA Booktubers?
Picture related, only likable person I've found so far.
One third of her six reviews are Harry Potter books.
I did think her stranger review was good and her video wasn't awful to watch like so many are. I'll be interested to see what she reviews each week/how long it takes her to give up doing a review a week.
Why does every female book tuber have a video on
>my favourite feminism books
>coping with anxiety
What is it about middle to upper class white women that prevents them from achieving self awareness?
>I'm here to review the stranger, by Ca-moo
God damn fucking Americans.
No American ever is in any position to talk shit to others for even the most egregious and outrageously shitty pronunciation of names.
How to be successful "BookTuber"
>Have shit taste in books
Literally all popular booktubers have same fucking favorite books
>Literally all popular booktubers have same fucking favorite books
That's because the general population has shit taste.
Now lets do some mathematics here, don't be scared i'll help you.
What is a bigger number, snowflakes like e/lit/ists or the absolute motherfucking general public?
If hypothetically they were 100 booktubers and 50 of them appealed to the massive audience taste, those 50 will be selected to have high views because of the numerical superiority of the plebs, while the 50 that didn't appeal to the general population will have collectively dare I say, less views than just ONE of the popular 50.
That's why they have "similar shit taste".
You literally have pop-music as an obvious example.
jean bookishthoughts knows her stuff about ancient greece but sadly she's gotten fat and started making videos about feminism instead of actually focussing on her area of expertise
the book chemist is likeable and pleasant to listen to
I find it very telling of this age that Youtube, a platform for sharing videos, is the place were people dump their reviews of videogames and books.
Most of the time the video itself is irrelevant (this is particularly infuriating when it's a videogame review, and the actual gameplay is just random footage) and the reviewer is reading from a sheet of paper a text that he/she has written. They are able to share their text somewhere (a blog, etc) but in reality no one would read it.
Youtube is the place to be for critical analysis, and it's stupid as fuck. People, especially young people, read less every day. Our attention span is getting shorter and shorter. And thus we need the video, a format that takes the viewer hand and does all the work to actually get to 'read' a critical analysis of books or games. I don't think books are going to last in this era, they can't, mark my words.
Hearing someone talk to you is different than reading from a screen. Especially for trivial thing like video games reviews, it's like talking to a friend who knows a lot about video games. I sometimes watch Fantano's music reviews instead of music websites because I don't care that much and just want to see someone bring up some points in a casual manner.
Also stop saying 'our' as if that's the case with all of us. The majority of people have always had low attention spans but now they are only getting exposed on the internet. Books are going to be just fine.
