Funny Rap Video About Reading Books

By Hannah Johnson

It may be hard to believe, but a video about reading books has made YouTube’s top ten most watched videos for today. Julian Smith’s rap video tells the story of a young man who just wants to read a book without being interrupted. “Don’t you ever interrupt me while I’m reading a book,” he says. Watch it here:

While browsing a bit on YouTube for more hilarious, book-related YouTube sensations, I also found this video about a kid who isn’t too happy about getting books for Christmas:

And who can forget the soon-to-be classic, all-time favorite book-related video of librarians singing their own adaptation of “Poker Face” by Lady Gaga (C-c-c-catalogue):
