Please cut me some slack on this video since, like I said, it's my first "vlog" ever. My lovely backdrop is my untidy kitchen and pantry...I swear it was the best lighting I could find in my apartment. And I do get a bit rambly at the end. So please try to ignore my mistakes. It was a fun experience overall and I do hope to do more video reviews in the future. Let me know what you think of it!
(Also, I look really young--I promise I'm not fifteen years old. :) )
P.S. Here's a blog post on my other blog about my video blogging experience, what I learned, and why you should try it, too!
You did a great job. What a fun way to deliver a book review.ReplyDelete
Nice entry! OK, you made me think more about Pamela, with some really great points. I *did* like it at first, but reading the second volume killed it--I shouldn't have done that, and wouldn't have if I'd realized that they're really two different books. I think the premise is fascinating, and give props to Richardson for bringing up such an important topic (the vulnerability of servant girls).ReplyDelete
The second volume--as in the "sequel" (about Squire B's affair, etc.)? I haven't read it yet, but my professor told me about it. I'm glad you liked the book, too! I had to put away a lot of my modern criticisms to appreciate it.Delete
That was a great vlog, I've always been impressed by people who have the confidence to do one -- I'm way to shy. Pamela sounds interesting and less intimadating than I thought it would be. Maybe I should added it to my Classics Club list.ReplyDelete
You do look a little young but not enough to be 15! I'm 28 and get mistaken for a high school student all the time. If I'm out and about when it snows people ask if it is a snow day. Although, we'll be happy when we're 40 and look like we're 30, at least that's what I'm hoping.
Haha! That's what I always hope. I'm glad you don't think I look TOO young.Delete
Thank you--I enjoyed doing it. I hope someday you get the courage and decide to do one too; that would be fun to see! I definitely think Pamela is less intimidating than a lot of other classics that people read. It would certainly be easier than books like Clarissa (also by Richardson), Ulysses, or even some Shakespeare plays. It's not a difficult read; it's just a bit long and wordy.
