Sooooooooo I am slightly terrified to make this announcement, but the other day my husband Adam (buff as he is brilliant) and I had this crazy idea that we should make a series of videos.

No, not that kind of video! 

Videos in which we discussed books and drank beer. You see, Adam and I have very different taste when it comes to reading, and we thought it would be a hoot to take turns choosing books for the other to read and then discuss them on camera. And then post them on YouTube. As one does in 2015.

(Why include the beer, you ask? I counter with a question of my own: Why not?!)

So we indulged the impulse. Adam chose a book for me to read, I read it, and we talked about it over a local beer. We had a pretty good time, too.

Please keep in mind if you choose to watch...this is our first effort. The driest of dry runs. We are not videographers, and we didn't bother to script anything other than the first ten seconds. The cuts are a little jumpy, I apparently can't talk without moving my hands, and the final cut is still almost 20 minutes long. O_o

All excuses and self-conscious hand-wringing aside, you can watch the first episode of He Read, She Read by clicking the link below.

He Read, She Read: Episode 1

Hope you have as much fun watching it as we had making it (although the odds of that are admittedly quite small).
