YouTube Movie…

Dateline: 9 August 2014

I am working on a Part 2 to my first YouTube video… Four Day Carrots. But, in the meantime, I decided to try making a YouTube clip of me reading a chapter from my book, Writings of a Deliberate Agrarian

This movie is not a how-to. It's a sit-back-and-relax-while-I-read-you-a-story movie. It's ten minutes long. If there is sufficient interest, I will do three more. If not, I'll cross book readings off my list of YouTube ideas. 

Here's the link:  An Episode of Garden Repose

I liked it and it will suit me very well when I pick up my knitting in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. I like stories and you have a very calming voice.

I really enjoyed your narration. It reminds me of the old PBS show "Cover to Cover" that I watched in elementary school in the 80's.

I thoroughly enjoyed your reading from your book. You have a voice that is easy to listen to. I purchased my copy of the paperback years ago and have since given additional copies as gifts to loved ones. Keep up the good work. I look forward to the next episode.

Funny you should say that.

When I'm reading in bed at night, and my wife can't get to sleep, she asks me to read to her. It doesn't matter what it is I'm reading. She falls asleep in no time.

Maybe I'm gifted with a voice that can help others get to sleep. If so, I'm okay with that.


That's kind of funny. I'm going to see if there is a YouTube clip of "Cover to Cover."


Thank you.

Herrick, I would love to watch and listen but video sucks up too much of our limited internet. Good luck with this new venture!

I just listened to your reading. Your voice is pretty much how I thought it would sound. I'm hooked and hope you do more. I bought your book what seems like years ago but perhaps only a few. It is nice to have your actual voice to hear when I go through it again. I hope you do another reading. It made me feel like I was listening to the old time radio. And that is a wonderful thing.
