The Bookaneer Self Narrates!

As I mentioned in my last post, I found inspiration in a new friend recently to start blogging again. Brandon is the founder of Self Narrate, which is an incredible storytelling project. When he asked me if I wanted to do a video for the project, I said sure!…without really thinking about what I would talk about. What could my story be? But then, after some self-reflection (which is one of the main points of the project), I decided that I must talk about the library, how it has affected me, and how I want to use it to affect others. I got pretty emotional! But it was a great experience, and talking about my passion and then watching the resulting video really helped me realize how important The Bookaneer is to me.

So here it is! Please let me know what you think!

If you are interested in submitting a story for Self Narrate, you can contact Brandon here or join the Meetup group here. It’s a lot of fun, you’ll meet tons of new and awesome people, and learn a whole lot about yourself.

ReadAloud Video: Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney

Today’s blog is a video post! I recorded a new ReadAloud video, of a great children’s book called Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. This is one of my favorite children’s books; it is visually stunning and has a really good message. And it features an awesome main character: Miss Alice Rumphius, a girl who grows up, becomes a librarian, goes on many adventures in faraway places, comes home to live by the sea, and makes the world more beautiful. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

If you have any suggestions of what you’d like to have in a future ReadAloud, leave me a comment here or on the video itself. I’ve got my new webcam set up so I hope to make lots more awesome videos soon!

Keep bookaneering!
