Archaeologist Digs BookTube #booktubenewbietag

BookTube is a wonderful place where book lovers can chat about books. I started my archaeology YouTube channel with some book content; however, I now have a dedicated BookTube channel! This post contains the YouTube video where I do the “BookTube Newbie” community tag, relevant links, and a full video transcript.

BookTube Newbie Tag Background

The “BookTube Newbie” tag, also called the “New To BookTube” tag, was created by YouTuber Brenda C. (channel no longer exists). She had 7 questions in her original tag and other YouTubers have added their own questions over the years.

I answered ten questions based on lists I found on BookTube Wiki and Words and Other Malarky. Here are the questions I answered:

  1. Why did you start this channel?
  2. What are some fun and unique things you can bring to BookTube?
  3. What are you most excited about for this channel?
  4. Why do you love reading?
  5. What book or series got you into reading?
  6. What questions would you ask your favorite BookTubers?
  7. What challenges do you think starting a YouTube channel will be the hardest to overcome?
  8. When did you start reading?
  9. Where do you read?
  10. What kind of books do you like to read?

I’m an archaeologist that travels around the world for both work and pleasure. I have a penchant for exploring ancient and modern places and the people, plants, and foods entangled in them. I write about archaeology, travel, and productivity.
