On YouTube – Books I own but haven’t read, part 2!

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick note sharing today’s video. I’ve accumulated more books that I’ve never read! I hope you’ll stop by and see πŸ™‚

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!

  1. You come across so nicely on video!!! I loved We Need To Talk About Kevin—I highly recommend it. Afterward, read Columbine by Dave Cullen. I have not read the Syrian one but read possibly a “rival” book–Mike Thompson’s Syria’s Secret Library. It’s funny, I was super excited by Prarie Fire, too, but I also have not read it! But I do recommend A Wilder Rose by Susan Wittig Albert for after you read it. (I’ll look forward to your review of Prarie Fire if you do read it). Teahouse Fire I thew back–it doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy it. I had an odd reason. I’m going over to Goodreads now to check out Glass House and Disappearing Earth!

    1. Oh thank you so much for watching my video. I truly appreciate it. I’ll let you know if I get around to reading Prairie Fire. I definitely want to! I think Disappearing Earth is supposed to be excellent.

    1. MIne is ridiculously high when you add in my Kindle books. And I have to commit to a book a month for work, so that always seems to take a long time. Thanks so much for watching. Hope you are doing well!

  2. Hi, Barb – Great video. I too have bought books that I haven’t gotten around to reading. I’m glad that I am not the only one. I actually haven’t read any of the specific titles in your pile — but I have read some of the authors. I look forward to your reviews on these books once you read them.

    1. Oh yes, we are all in good company, I think. It’s a comfort thing to have a lot of books to read, although sometimes it makes me anxious too. Thanks for the visit, Donna!

  3. So many books, so little time! Like you, I’ll buy a book by an author that I like (loved Orphan Train as well). I don’t think I’ve ever bought a book because I like the cover, although the covers more and more now give an indication of what “kind” of book it will be (seems like all rom com books are in bright lined drawings). And I refuse to buy a book with half-clad women and men on it – I don’t mind romance, but not bodice rippers, please. I really struggled with the cover of my flash memoir, (it’s a day before Pub date). My publisher really helped me choose a photo colorful yet waterwashed to give a little bit of a dreamy aspect. Great video, Barbara!

    1. Haha, bodice rippers. My son and I used to go to the used book sale and crack up at those – Fabio on horseback. I do admit, I am atrracted to certain covers – mostly the bright ones. Thank you for stopping by, Pam!

  4. I have so many books I own and want to read. I managed to get the pile down last year during the lockdown. Every time I read one of those books that had been gathering dust, I thought, Why did I wait so long to read that book? You have some great books there.

    1. Hi Robbie – thanks for confirming that. I was pretty off the cuff in my video! I saw you left a comment on YouTube – thank you! I’ll get over there soon. Yes, Prairie Fires looks really good to me. Happy Saturday πŸ™‚

  5. I’m commenting before I view the video, but suffice it to say my heap of books unread is on my Kindle. Embarrassing to say, but true.

    Thanks, Barbara, for both the info and the entertainment. πŸ™‚

  6. Hi, Barb, I’m a little late to this party. I also read Plain Truth, along with several other Picoult books. I only read To Have and Have Not recently, not one of my favourites by Hemingway, but worth the read nonetheless. It’s been a while since I’ve read anything by Grisham too!

    1. Hi Jennifer – I’m also late in replying to your comment. I’m always playing catch-up with my blog, more now than ever. I haven’t read To Have and Have Not. And the Grisham book, my dad gave it to me for Christmas one year and I still haven’t read it. I really need to do that. Thank you for reading and watching and commenting! Hope you are doing well. Say hello to Vivian!
