Readeropolis BookTube Your Shelf Anniversary


The
BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader turns one year old this March. [Cue
the party music!] The time has flown by so quickly. My to-be-read
list has expanded even faster. As a reader, you know that is both a
good and bad thing. LOL!

YouTube
for the Bookish?

YouTube.com
is the second most visited website in the world - where over 1.9
billion logged-in users visit each month. And each day, people watch
over a billion hours of video and generate billions of views. While
many people are aware of the music videos, make-up channels and
gaming channels on the platform, far fewer know about the great
bookish content available on YouTube. BookTube is a community of
content creators on YouTube that film videos about books. The
BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader is a daily online newspaper
featuring social shares from booktubers (including authortubers) and
some bookish neighbors (like bloggers and readers). Are you familiar
with BookTube?

Once
Upon A Time...

Between
changes in YouTube's algorithm and my book reading taste, it was a
struggle for me to keep up with my favorite booktubers and keep
a look-out for new booktubers. I knew many other fans of BookTube
were having similar problems.

When
YouTube changed it's monetization rules in early 2018, many people,
including myself, worried about it's overall impact on small content
creators. As I looked at my personal BookTube channel list, I
thought, "What can I do to help support and encourage bookish
content creators?" Then poof! The idea for The BookTube Your
Shelf Daily Reader popped into my head. [Yes, with a poof]. What
started out as an idea in March of 2018 has morphed into a passion
project with an online newspaper and email newsletter.

Find
Your Next Favorite...

One
of the goals of The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader project is to
help you find your next favorite booktuber. Check out the Videos
section of TBYSDR for suggestions on bookish YouTube videos to watch.
It features over 25 videos each

Assassin By Day by Tessa Robertson


Assassin
By Day
by
Tessa Robertson

Genre:
Thriller

What
would you do if the mystery to your mother’s death lay with your
employer?


After
years of unanswered questions, Mishka Vald sets out to uncover the
skhodka’s involvement in her past. What she doesn’t expect is to
join forces with men who push her to become a double-agent and
confirm her future. While hunting down leads, the ruthless assassin
realizes a life in the shadows is the only way for her to protect
those she loves.

For
Mishka, forbidden love is worth the pain when it comes to Eddie
Harper, a military man turned cop. Her affection waivers when duty
comes first and she joins forces with an elite Russian soldier,
Alexei Petrovich. With a blackmailer threatening her school love, she
seeks refuge with a fellow assassin, Nickolas Volkov. And when pushed
too far, she’s ushered to a secure location…and straight into the
arms of mysterious handyman, Dylan Kain. As the pieces fall into
place, their mangled order reveals each man’s true intention. Whose
deceit can she accept and whose will obliterate her?

All
roads lead back to the woman she thought dead—her mother. Now, as
weddings are crashed and alliances tested, Mishka uncovers a deadly
game and the players involved. Her heart, once unable to budge, is
thrust into action, but which man can keep her soul intact?






**Only
.99 cents!!**





Catalyst
at Night
Book
2

The
skhodka isn’t done with their best assassin yet.


Too
bad for them, as a rivaling mob – the vory – holds Mishka Vald
captive. The real kicker? She’s trapped in her mother’s clutches
with the two men she loves, with no escape from the devious scheme
Alena Vald cooked up to destroy the skhodka.

After
spiriting across the globe with one man in tow, Mishka comes face to
face with her past. Piecing together the distorted memories would be
easy if someone hadn’t tampered with them.

Can
Mishka slip through the grips of warring Russian mobs for a chance at
a normal life? Find out in Catalyst at Night., the sequel to Assassin
by Day.

up on her favorite shows; and listens to country music.
