I am so  proud of myself for making this vlog. It took me for EVER! So watch it! Ignore the fact that I don't look at the camera all the time! Eeep! And when I go a little strange in the middle that is because I was convinced someone was listening through the letter box! (Paranoid, or what!)

  1. Much better than one of my vlogs! xD

  2. Great vlog - you looked and sounded so natural like you've been doing them forever! I keep meaning to do vlogs too for a couple of things and then don't get up the nerve, so I'm very impressed! :D

  3. Rhys - thank you for the flattery, but I don't think so.

    Book Chick City - Really? Perhaps it is because I had to keep repeating it as the dog kept barking! Or the fact I was a teacher and had to stand up in front of hoards of kids. Thank you for being so generous and kind though.

  4. This is brilliant! It's great to see you! *waves*
    And great books, too. Happy reading!

  5. Luisa - thank you! It seems so weird how we all only ever talk via email, Twitter and blog posts. So it is nice to see us in the flesh.

    Natframpton - thank you ever so much!

  6. I'm always too nervous to do vlogs so I'm so in awe of anyone who can sit in front of the camera and talk without looking silly! Plus you've had a great selection of books! :)

  7. Haha, great job on the vlog! I keep meaning to do one but they take so long and I'm camera shy... ;) You got some great books, I can't wait for my copy of TSPOLAFS to arrive, it looks SO awesome! :D Happy reading!

  8. What a great vlog - you are a natural, Vivienne! - and what a wonderful selection of books. My reading pile is about to grow once again. :)

  9. YAY! Lovely to see you for real! lol. also you are not only with the vlogging trouble because i suck at it!

  10. Lovely vlog!! It's actually nice to get to put a face to the name (sort of :))

    I haven't been brave enough to do one yet, but maybe some day soon!

  11. Jenna - aw thank you. My family might not agree though. Sorry to add to your list.

    SisterSpooky vlogging was a real effort.
