Carl, We Want a Vlog

One of the highlights of BEA was the opportunity to meet so many awesome bloggers in real life. Kathy of Bermuda Onion was one of the bloggers I met and she's tops. Really, she's just a wonderful person in every way.

In addition to Kathy, I met Kathy's husband Carl. Let me tell you how cool Carl is. We all woke up at the crack of dawn, (after only two hours of sleep for Julie and I!) to stand in line to get tickets to snag a copy of Catching Fire signed by Suzanne Collins. Unfortunately, Natasha was still in the shuttle on the way to the convention center from the airport. We were all feeling bummed because we weren't supposed to get more than one ticket for a signing and we were worried Natasha would miss out. Well guess what? Carl got a ticket for Natasha! Wasn't that nice of him?

Now Carl has read both the Hunger Games and Catching Fire but he hasn't reviewed them for Kathy. Maybe he doesn't like writing. Fair enough. But I think we'd all like to hear his thoughts on these beloved books. So why not do a vlog?

So...if you're interested in seeing a vlog of Carl sharing his thoughts on books, chime in with a comment! Let's give him the encouragement he needs!!! :)

Carl, Carl he's our man, if he can't do it, NO ONE can!

From experience, my husband, aka The Man, reads and WANTS to help me review, so instead of his sitting at the computer and writing his review, we do a little interview. You two should VLOG an interview review!

I've asked my husband more than once to do a review on the one book he reads a year, and he has replied that he has no interest in doing such a thing! Spoil sport! I had to laugh at myself, because when I saw the title of your post, I immediately thought of Carl of RIP. Tells you where my head is at!

We definitely need a Kathy/Carl vlog. Please?

Beth Kephart said...

You made me laugh so hard with this one. Yes, Carl. Give us a vlog!!!

Loving the comments and laughing as I type. Come on Carl, who can say no this group? I think it would be wonderful to see you do a weekly vlog.... too much? How about monthly? Ok, ok... occasionally it is. :)

You really know how to drive a hard bargain. :)
