I've been looking forward to celebrating The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader's one year anniversary. It's finally here! Following the BookTube community has been so much fun. 

We will be celebrating the anniversary all month long. Join us for:



The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader turns one year old this March. [Cue the party music!] The time has flown by so quickly. My to-be-read list has expanded even faster. As a reader, you know that is both a good and bad thing. LOL!


YouTube for the Bookish?

YouTube.com is the second most visited website in the world - where over 1.9 billion logged-in users visit each month. And each day, people watch over a billion hours of video and generate billions of views. While many people are aware of the music videos, make-up channels and gaming channels on the platform, far fewer know about the great bookish content available on YouTube. BookTube is a community of content creators on YouTube that film videos about books. The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader is a daily online newspaper featuring social shares from booktubers (including authortubers) and some bookish neighbors (like bloggers and readers). Are you familiar with BookTube?




Once Upon A Time...

Between changes in YouTube's algorithm and my book reading taste, it was a struggle for me to keep up with my favorite booktubers and keep a look-out for new booktubers. I knew many other fans of BookTube were having similar problems.

When YouTube changed it's monetization rules in early 2018, many people, including myself, worried about it's overall impact on small content creators. As I looked at my personal BookTube channel list, I thought, "What can I do to help support and encourage bookish content creators?" Then poof! The idea for The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader popped into my head. [Yes, with a poof]. What started out as an idea in March of 2018 has morphed into a passion project with an online newspaper and email newsletter.


Find Your Next Favorite...

One of the goals of The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader project is to help you find your next favorite booktuber. Check out the Videos section of TBYSDR for suggestions on bookish YouTube videos to watch. 

It features over 25 videos each day. https://paper.li/Readeropolis/1517059010#/videos

Another goal of the project is to help you find your next great read. In The BookTube Your Shelf web newspaper, you'll find a variety of posts like:
  • Book News
  • Book Giveaways
  • Book Reviews
  • Videos about Books
  • Videos about Reading
  • Videos about Writing
  • Book Trailers
Don't Miss A Thing.

Don't struggle with searching for book-related videos in the YouTube hay stack. Subscribe to The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader Email Newsletter to have the paper delivered to your email inbox. https://paper.li/Readeropolis/1517059010#/

Be sure to "Like" the TBYSDR Facebook page to stay up-to-date on the latest edition. https://www.facebook.com/BookTubeYourShelf/


But wait... there's more!

During March I will be hosting a month-long event called BookTube Z to A, highlighting BookTube channels on YouTube, at the Readeropolis book blog. Look for the hashtag #BookTubeZtoA on your favorite social sites.  

You can follow all of the anniversary celebration events by joining the Facebook anniversary event page (click "Going" to get updates): https://www.facebook.com/events/358689728051151/

  1. I'm not sure if I do or not. I watch a lot of videos and look up stuff when it comes to specifically wanting to know at a time. So, my answer is maybe, but I'd love to know more about all that and maybe know what are yours?

  3. I have watched a few book videos. The one that I really remember was a video for the book "Arsen". In general, though, I don't watch those types of videos & I don't follow accounts that have to do with book stuff on youtube.

  21. I follow a lot of authors on YouTube, and I find that the characters in the books come alive when watching the videos.. It gives you the idea of what the author imagined characters looking like, background, personality, etc.. It actually helps to see if you actually want to read the book.
