AlexandBooks + YouTube

Hi everyone!

I hope to continue sharing knowledge and important books with all of you throughout 2018. In addition to writing articles, I’m also working on creating YouTube videos about some of my favorite books. As mentioned before, I’m teaching myself as I go along, but I'm constantly working to get better.

Please leave both positive and constructive comments either in the comment section at the bottom of this page or on YouTube. I will read every comment. If there's a book you want me to make a video on, comment below as well. Once again, thank you for the continuous support and I hope you enjoy these videos and learn something new!

Best regards,

Alex from
