Call Me Ishmael project

The Call Me Ishmael project is beautiful and very simple – you leave Ishmael a voicemail about a book you love or is important to you, and he transcribes them on a typewriter and shares it on youtube.

You can find the youtube channel here and the website here.

There’s a range of books talked about, from non-fiction, to children’s books, to classics, to contemporary. Some stories are funny, some are sad, but they’re all moving in their own way. Here’s a sample:

The Dictionary

House of Leaves

The Time Traveler’s Wife
