ADAM DURAND : MEMENTO MORI
Hello, my name is Adam and I live in Seattle,
Washington USA. I run a Booktube channel called
'Memento Mori' which I created in early 2016 and
where I talk about and occasionally review books that I
am currently reading.
Though I do not work in the literacy or publishing
industry, I have a deep passion for reading that has
carried me through the years. Booktube has not only
been a great place for me to talk about the books that
I love (or hate) but also an incredible way for me to
connect to readers from around the world.
I read a variety of books both fiction and non-fiction,
My name is Dominique and I create media
around literature. I like to blend pop culture
and digital media to enhance the way we
engage with contemporary literature!
