Nerdfighters Blurbing Book Club

This guy is new to me but I have to admit that I like his idea of a "blurbing book club" and, since he made me smile a couple of times, I wanted to pass on his idea. After all, writing a "blurb" has to be easier than writing a 500-word review, so maybe this is something we can all use from time to time. Enjoy the temptation, anyway.



From the looks of things, the "vlogbrothers" have been producing YouTube videos for over a year and have done something like 271 of them...who knew?

  1. This reminds me of something on NPR radio recently where the listeners were being challenged to write their memoirs in 6 words or less. My favorite: "Not quite what I had planned".

  2. I actually have done a couple of four-word-reviews on my blog, which actually take more time to think of than a longer review! But it's fun!

  3. Sharon, that's a cool idea. I really love the example you gave and I've been toying with the idea ever since...with nothing to show for my efforts yet.

  4. Jeane, his enthusiasm is what caught my eye at first, too...I love that in a "book person." :-)

  6. I'm sure you're right about the degree of difficulty, chain reader...that kind of thing is always a lot harder than it looks.
