typicalbooks 21 – 666 by Jay Anson – Booktube Review

For my first YouTube video in a very long time, I picked a nice old book. There are several more planned, another already shot, and I really hope I can keep making review videos of my collection.

Afterchanging gear and software, it’s an experiment all over again and we shall see how the winter goes. Pretty sure I’ll never entirely abandon video, and I’m grateful my subscribers have stuck by all this time!

This goes hand in hand with the paid reviews I’ve been doing here and there, plus some of the reviews I’ve done as an advance copy reader. After never really having the time to make the most of my reading I decided to do what I can to make the time, and I hope it is enjoyable and informative.

666 by Jay Anson is a 1981 horror novel by the same author as The Amityville Horror. This was a posthumous release, and I was very happy to find it in a random used book store.
