Q&A: BookTuber Priscilla at The Readables


We all know there are book bloggers, but there are also BookTubers on YouTube who talk about books. Here are some of my favourites! Make sure to drop by and check their videos out.

Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Priscilla, I’m from Canada, and I read books. I work full-time as a graphic designer, and on my downtime I create videos for my booktube channel, The Readables.

How long have you been book tubing?

3 and a half years.


Which video is your favourite one to film? (Reviews, book hauls, tag, etc.)

Recently, the Top 5 Wednesday series videos. They’re mini discussions about my favourite books and/or book related topics. The topics are a lot fun, and although at times it can be tough trying to narrow down just five choices, it’s enjoyable just discussing about books and my favourite characters.

How has book tubing changed the way you read? Do you read more from other genres you never considered before?

Booktubing has definitely helped me discover many more books, which resulted in me reading a lot more. I’ve probably read more books in one year, than all my time prior to booktubing. I’m also a lot more open about different books/genres than before, for example Classics. I didn’t think I would read them after high school, but today I’ve grown to be really fond of them.

Do you have any tips for new BookTubers?

The hardest part is starting, so I say take a leap and jump right in. Make videos. Now. Don’t worry about fancy equipment. Film in front of a window or well lit area. At first it’s weird filming, but over time it becomes less weird. Don’t try to be perfect, just do your best. Have fun, interact with the community, and don’t forget why you started booktubing–to talk about your love for books. Happy reading and vlogging! 🙂
