  1. I love this format, Braine! It's great to be able to hear your actual voice telling me about the books! :) I appreciate you telling us about how these books made you feel - whether you finished them or not. Hubs and I had to read Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus before we got married - our minister had us read it during out pre-marriage classes. :D So I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'll definitely look for No Matter What!
    Happy Friday!! *mwah*

  2. I like watching your videos. You weren't kidding, you really have been reading a lot of self help.

  3. Great video and how fun to put a face and voice to everything else. ;)

  4. You started making videos?? So nice!!

  5. thats so awesome, I am glad you are feeling books again :) - I am going to have to come back to viewing the video when I have my speakers again >.< and comment more than

  6. I think it's neat that you're branching into the vlog reviewing. I don't even have to do one to think it's hard since I think all of you who do them are brave to go on screen. I know I would freeze up and do a lot of 'um-ing'. :)

    But wow, look at all the books. I've never been a Joan Rivers fan so that one would be out for me, but the Anthony Bourdain sounds interesting. And, I haven't read Men Are From Mars Women Are From Venus book. I have been involved in discussions in the work break room when it was first out, but never got around to it. It does sound practical and helpful.
    I can see you had a good connection with the last book, No Matter What. I need that when I'm reading.

    Thanks for sharing and you did great summarizing these. :)

  7. I'm not an audio book person either. I tried one but just didn't care for it.

  8. Great job on summarizing each of these books. I watch Kitchen Confidential and some of Bourdain's other shows occasionally. Good to know that the book Kitchen Confidential is a nice one to listen to on audio.

  9. Nice video, sis- keep 'em coming! I used to enjoy watching No Reservations, and it's what made me want to read Kitchen Confidential. So cool that he narrated the audiobook version!

  10. I am more of a reader than an audiobook listener as well, although to be honest I haven't actually given audiobooks a try yet. There's just something about reading that comes easier to me than listening. I pick things up easier when reading. But I keep telling myself I will give audiobooks a try eventually. Maybe I should give non-fiction audiobooks a try too.

    That's great you managed to listen to 5 audiobooks, even though two of them were DNF's. Sorry those two didn't work for you. Man are from Mars and Women from venus is one I heard about, I am pretty sure it's translated from dutch as I vaguely remember seeing the book in bookstores here. I didn't watch the whole video, but it was fun to see you and hear you talk about these books.

  11. Go on ahead with your bad self 😀. I have to get back to vlogging, sometimes its just a better way to explain stuff you've read.
