It’s time once again to share some amazing videos from Penguin Random House (@penguinrandom) that cover a vast array of topics from kidnapping to terrorism to books and so much more.
I had planned to share an audio review with you today, but this first video just struck a chord with me and I had to share it. I guess it’s my background as a journalist that made this one so moving. Then I decided to share the rest of the videos as well.
To view each of the videos just click on the highlighted link at the end of the caption. There are also links for sharing on Twitter and Facebook.
