But first, some notes on the video.
- Please forgive the video quality. I just used the video option of my point-and-shoot camera.
- Please disregard the noise. Our building is located right along the main artery of the metro. Yes, the buses honk 24/7. It’s not an exaggeration.
- I cannot control my facial twitches. I only realize every time I record myself that I have those nasty facial expressions.
- I didn’t bother to fix my room or my hair, so please do not maximize this window for the sake of my dignity.
- You just have to trust me that there’s only one take for this raffle. There’s no point in rigging the raffle. Most of the participants are my friends.
Here are the participants and their recommended books:
- Maria recommends A Separate Peace by John Knowles
- Lynai recommends Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
