You're alright if the book is in the public domain. If the book is still copyrighted, you must obtain permission from the rights-holder, which in this situation (creating a film) is most likely the publisher.

It is against the law. You would be in violation of copyright laws, which are normally with the publisher, who owns the audio and video rights to the book. YouTube can remove videos that violate these laws, but it does not guarantee that they will be removed.
Furthermore, uploading copyrighted material to any online service without a license from the copyright holder is also against the law. Copyright infringement is a criminal offense subject to fines up to $150,000 or five years in prison for each violation.
The good news is that YouTube has systems in place to prevent new accounts from being created by individuals looking to spread illegal content. If you try to create an account when you already have a subscriber list, you will be presented with a notification informing you that your accounts are currently blocked due to multiple sign-ups from one IP address. There is no way around this block, so if you want to create a channel for infringing material, it's best to use a different IP address than your main account.
When it comes to removing videos that have been uploaded illegally, YouTube has become much more proactive over the past few years. If you find copyrighted material on your site, you can report it using the link on our navigation bar. The Google team will review the case and may decide to remove the content or issue a warning.
Can I upload or share a video of myself reading aloud a copyrighted book?

If you are not the author, you need permission from the author or rights holder to post the book online.
In most cases, the copyright holder will give permission for readers to make videos of themselves reading from their books at open-access websites like Wikipedia and Open Culture. These sites do not make any money from the content they post, so they rely on user contributions to survive. Therefore, it's in their interest to allow as many people as possible to read books online for free.
However, if you try to sell copies of the book with ads inserted in them or use the video in another way that benefits you financially, then you need permission from the copyright holder to do so. For example, selling the video on YouTube would require permission from the author or their agent. Likewise, if you wanted to include excerpts from the book in your own blog, you would also need permission. In general, if you are not the author or a legal representative of the author, you don't have permission to post videos of yourself reading from copyrighted books.

First of all, you can read books out loud in your own home to your family or friends. Also, reading from a published work that is in the public domain (i.e., not subject to any copyrights) is not a violation. Finally, reading from a book that you have bought or received as a gift is also not a violation.
In other words, reading books on YouTube is not illegal, but it can lead to problems if you do not follow some simple rules. If you are asked by a copyright holder not to read their books aloud on YouTube, then do so immediately. There may be ways around this, but it is better to follow instructions than get into trouble with copyright holders.
Reading books on YouTube allows people to learn about new authors and titles thematic blogs and magazines may not cover. It also gives voice to many people who would otherwise be unable to share their views with the world. Therefore, it is important to note that the Internet has both advantages and disadvantages.

For example, if you want to quote small portions of the text in an academic setting, you can do so without asking permission from the publisher or author. You are allowed to do this because it is considered fair use. There are four factors that courts look at when determining whether something is fair use: 1 the purpose of the use; 2 the nature of the work; 3 the amount used; 4 the effect of the use on the market for the work.

I'm an author, and I have no problem with my fans reading my works online, and I'd be astonished if any author objected.
However, reading from a digital file is different from listening to an audio book. When you listen to an audio book, you are usually looking at a written transcript of the words being spoken by the actor reading the voiceover. This allows you to follow what is happening in the story without having to wait for each word to be said. It also allows you to understand what is being said even if you do not speak English as your first language.
When you read a book from a digital file instead, you are simply reading text that has been typed out one word at a time. There is no way to go back and change something if you make a mistake, and there is no voiceover artist to help you understand what is going on in the story. The only person who can hear the words you are reading is you. This makes reading from digital files less efficient than listening to an audio book, but it does allow you to read whatever book you want regardless of where you live in the world.
You cannot stream yourself reading a book online either.
