Virtual Book Readings and How to Fight Boredom

Virtual Book Readings and How to Fight Boredom
James McAdams| June 30, 2010
Here are a few humble notes on how to re-invent book readings in the COVID-19 age:

  • Don’t read anything longer than 250 words.
  • If something is longer, summarize and emphasize the parts you are proud of
  • Read your favorite lines; pretend you’re an aphorist
  • People love inspiration, or where a story comes from. Stop reading and actually talk to the camera about this incident
  • Don’t use a script. Be informal. Be warm.
  • Talk about other weird things, such as book covers, blurbs, your author bio, and dedication
  • Play music either live or from the computer
