Will BookTube Overtake Book Blogging?

As I am old and wrinkled with scraggly hairs cascading out of my ears and various unidentified discharges causing me to lick my lips and roll my eyes (that sneeze, that wheeze, and all those miseries), I can’t see myself commenting on the intricacies of, say, Asian popular literature without at least wearing my best Keroppi outfit. Maybe I should go back to my dark corner, brush a few alien-looking insects off my desk, and read a new transgressive novel, gurgling at the scenes with maximum bodily fluids and chortling at the raw wit. Nope, nothing yclept Tube is in my future.

A Little Blog of Books

I like to think that I am relatively in touch with what’s going on in the book blogging world. However, until very recently, I must confess that I didn’t really know anything at all about BookTube, let alone how big it has become over the past few years. It turns out that there is a whole other world out there of book vloggers known as BookTubers who create video blogs about books on YouTube.
