So I originally recorded this vlog in which I talked about all of these books ANDDDD showed off my new nail polish from Julep and some yummy gourmet chocolate covered pretzels and popcorn. However, I went to edit it and the audio and my lips were not syncing AT ALL sooo that’s annoying as crap to watch. So my books had a photoshoot with my kitchen table — not nearly as exciting, I know. Sorry if it went too fast on the “Things Of Note” about each book. I didn’t want it to be TOO long up there but I kept testing out how long it took me to read it.
I’ll try next week for a vlog and let’s hope technology and I get along better. EFF YOU OUT OF SYNC VIDEO!
