Carolyn Astfalk has a first Wednesday of the month book review linkup!
In the interests of being as efficient with my time as I possibly can, I’m killing two birds with one stone. In addition to reviewing books for #OpenBook, I’ve started a monthly event on Facebook Live over at my author page. It’s called Sabbath Rest Book Talk, and in it I’ll talk about a few of the books I’ve read in the past month in terms of how they, as fiction, help us grow in humanity.
For the August episode of SRBT, for the the thumbnaily-thing below to watch the video on YouTube:
And here are links to the books discussed in August’s episode, focusing on EMPATHY:
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Gilgamesh the Hero by Geraldine McCaughrean
Roland West: Loner by Theresa Linden
Don’t forget to link up YOUR #OpenBook reviews over at Carolyn’s!
I love that you linked up video! Though I’m still way underusing video, I think it is more widely digested than print.
Is it? I eschew videos unless I KNOW they are brief and clean, because as soon as a video plays on a device, my offspring are drawn like vultures to groundhog carcass. Am the the only one?
Gosh, no! My kids are the SAME way, so I’m with you there. But I think people without ever-present kids watch them. And if my kid and his peers are any indication, they watch YouTube vs. read a blog by about 100 to 1. So, I guess it depends on your target audience.
