Patrice Jones says:

I am a little behind on responding, but I plan to read Invisible Man and The Warmth of Other Suns for Black History month. We shall see how I do on them. Great video.

Empath Andrina says:

It's not just you, I too couldn't get through invisible man. But that was years ago, so I might give it another try

Ivana Split says:

Lovely tag!
Well, you certainly got me interested about Being Mortal!

My books are not organized at all, I really must need to find a system that works for me.

I struggled with Invisible Man too, but I ended up falling in love with it. My advice is that you pick it up again when you feel ready because it does require effort and it is not the easiest novel to read…At some point in the future when you have time and energy give it another try- it is worth it!

sarahannereads says:

I added Being Mortal to my TBR after watching your review and I've now added The Warmth of Other Suns as well. (Seriously…my TBR is never going to end thanks to booktube.)

Aisha Soleil says:

I just found your channel and I'm currently binge-watching your videos. So far I love the diversity of the books you read. I'm definitely getting inspiration for my ever-growing TBR list. 😁

Yenny Lestari says:

it's pronounced Eka (ka in Karaoke) Koor-knee-ah-wand(no D) I'm Indonesian so I know abt it ^^

mynameismarines says:

Caitlin from Book Chats recommended Being Mortal to be at the beginning of this year, so this was a nice reminder that I need to get around to that! My library had it available so I've added it to my Kindle. Interestingly enough, I brought this book up two days ago while in conversation with my boss as we were talking about the death of parents and last wishes and all that jazz. All signs point to me finally reading this book.

Knowledge Lost says:

Love this tag so much, nice to see people doing it. Also the empathy exam sounds like a good answer

ThePoptimist says:

Boom! Challenge accepted – and thanks for tagging me! This one was a ton of fun to do.

adultishbooks says:

Yay! This seems like a tag I might actually do.

If it means anything, Jeremy hated Invisible Man.

Retired Book Nerd says:

I am so glad you did this tag! I think I learn so much about my favorite booktubers when they do a tag! I would also like to read The Warmth of Other Suns… It may have to wait until 2017. haha…. I want to read ALL THE BOOKS! Have a great weekend!

Marie Berg says:

Great answers! 🙂 So very true about the empathy – much needed! Im looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Man Tiger 🙂 xx

Lida Oommen says:

Thank you chechiiii ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🙌🙌🙌👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😄😄😄😄

WhatKamilReads says:

I'm going to read Man Tiger this weekend as well. Looking forward to your thoughts on that.

Jakob Tanner says:

By the Book is such a good column! Though sometimes I find authors come across really badly sometimes in the interviews haha. I think I found my reading taste most aligned with the comedian Patton Oswalt 😛 Great video 🙂

Lynecia Osei - Burgess says:

This is probably my favorite tag; i usually don't watch them.

Nicole Sweeney says:

YES. THE WARMTH OF OTHER SUNS. I'm gonna have to go back and find your other discussions of this book, but it's definitely my #1 "everyone needs to read this" book.

Spine Breakers says:

I really need to pick up Being Mortal. Hearing you rave about it has made me really want to read it! -Sue

Effusions of Wit says:

I just watched this on Danielle's channel… such a fun tag! It's been forever since I've done one, so I'm looking forward to it, thank you for tagging me 😀

I am definitely looking into The Empathy Exams and Being Mortal per your recommendation… I watched your Book Riot vid the other day and they both sounded like important reads! I also would like to read The Warmth of Other Suns. It's SO BIG though! Definitely one for when I have the time/patience.

Secundra Beasley says:

This made my day!!! I was going to be a BookTuber for one day, so I could do the tag and tag you to do it. Thank you!!
