Ideas wanted!

Okay, so Jade and her friend Jules have started up this video blog, and forums to go with it. The site is here, and the forums here, if any of you are interested in checking it out. There's only one vlog up so far, but they're aiming to update weekly.

At any rate, I'm contemplating filming a book review or two every week as well, and having Jade and Jules edit them into the show. Or I suppose I could always just do them separately. I'm a bit nervous about doing these on video, as I've no idea what I am going to say. But I figure I'll give it a shot. Hell, if I don't keep up with the videos I may at least write out some reviews.

This is where you come in. I need ideas for books to discuss. I read a lot and have loads I could choose from, but I'd like to know what people want to hear about. What genres are you most interested in? Are there any specific books that you'd like to know about? Even if I haven't read it already I'm willing to go check it out at the library, so pretty much anything goes. The only exceptions to this are manga and graphic novels. Can't really get those at the library, though I might be able to find them at Patty's or borrow them from a friend. So make the suggestions if you'd like, but no promises on those.

So, yeah. I'm not sure how many people actually read this, but if you do, let me know what you think. Post a comment on here (preferably), or catch me on MSN if you'd rather do that. Thanks!

A Song Of Ice And Fire! A Song Of Ice And Fire! A Song Of Ice And Fire!

And Wrinkle In Time!
That is if you decide to do it. Hmmm Look At Jen's Video she did for her friend, she reviewed books on it,
So yeah maybe look at it for ideas:)

You could do a Rainbow Six review :P

It would be cool if you reviewed fantasy books, as for someone like me who doesn't venture out of a certain genre (techno-thriller), it would be a good way to see what is worth reading.

Well, I still think you should check out V For Vendetta or Watchmen. Then you could not only do a review of the writing itself (which is magnificent) but also on the artwork. Don't limit yourself darlin' go all out with it. Or, if ya don't wanna pick up something new, start with your LICD books. Those could be entertaining as all hell.
