Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out: A Separate Peace

So earlier this week I bought a shiny new webcam, and this morning I broke it in by making my first-ever Virtual Read-Out video for Banned Books Week! I chose to read an excerpt from A Separate Peace by John Knowles, partly because I really just love this book and partly because I have already reviewed it here on the blog, so I had a good idea which excerpt I could legitimately read under two minutes.

You can find this and any other videos I end up making for the blog on my new YouTube Channel - I created tabs at the top of the page with links to different places where you can connect with me.

Anyway, here is my video:

If you made a Virtual Read-Out video for Banned Books Week, feel free to leave a link in the comments! And don't forget - 1 October is the last day to enter both my Banned Books Giveaway AND my It's My Birthday! Giveaway. I will be randomly selecting a winner for both giveaways on 2 October.


  1. Hurrah for banned books!! Love your video with read out.

  2. Aww, I'm so glad that you're supporting Banned Books Week, Colleen! I still can't believe that so many people tried to ban awesome books from the library, and I LOVE that you think it's wrong, just like me! :)

  3. That's an awesome thing to do, I like it.
