Nostalgic Reads 1: A Look at Some of the Old Favorites!


In our wall of personal memories, I suspect we all take a trip down memory lane now and again. It’s human nature, and we all, hopefully, have a bevy of fond memories. But what about our bookish life? Do you have take a look back at the reads you read in your teenage years? Or before? Do you ever look back at those reads you’d say are nostalgic reads?

Recently I decided to do just this in the latest booktube video (a ‘nostalgic reads 1’ subject). A video that has a story to go with it.

You see, I’m working really hard to get ahead of the filming schedule so I don’t leave myself with so little time between filming, and publication, the in-between of which is required for edits. This video is one I filmed a little ahead so there wouldn’t be a rush. Part of the problem is I had to move this video up on my calendar (yes, I have an actual one right now instead of only a mental one, which you know is my usual) because the video planned for this week can’t go live until the first week of October. Something that, for once, is no fault of mine.

But even though I was a little annoyed that I had to edit a video that wasn’t yet on “deck” for the channel, this isn’t where things really do downhill. Nope where that happens is when, while starting to edit, I realize there is no “first half” to this video! (No intro, no nothing.) I know I filmed it, so my best guess is either accidental deletion or I was talking to a camera that wasn’t recording. 

I’m leaning towards the latter because while it’s not a good thing to admit I might not have hit the glaring read “record” button, I also don’t want to think I keep deleting videos.

Anyway, my rant is over. So, bottom line is, today’s video is a blending of content. The latter half of the original video (because I didn’t feel like a re-film for this one was good since it’s kind of a “reaction” video), and the intro I just filmed to add in this week. If you’d like to see it in all its messiness, you can find it now live on the channel. In the meantime, I’d like to know all about your nostalgic reads – and your booktube misadventures. We all have these stories, right?
