So onto my next video review. The book I review below is called Waking Lions by Ayelet Gundar-Goshen, and I picked it up because of the premise — it’s timely and unique. It’s also a translation, which prompted me to read it because I love exploring books from cultures and languages other than my own — it’s like traveling without the food poisoning!
Smokey seems content to just hang out in my arms in this one which was a nice break from the usual for her. You’ll notice I make a funny face at the camera when trying to get my point across at the very end, and now that I’ve watched the video a few times I realize how annoying that can become (sorry ’bout that). I’ve been reading a few articles online about how to make better YouTube videos so I’ve attempted to add an ‘end screen’, but you’ll also notice my audio is still pretty crappy because I haven’t sprung for an external mic yet. All in due time…
