Fun Reading Videos

I know this video has circulated, but it makes my librarian heart so happy, I have to share:




Simone Elkeles release the Rules of Attraction trailer and it's fabulous! (Although, I'm a little sad there's no song to get stuck in my head this time!)




And I really think Jessica Brody gets awesome book trailers. This one is for her YA debut novel The Karma Club.

  1. That Karma Club trailer is awesome! I now not only want to read the book, I want to watch a movie based on the book.

  2. Abby-I know-that's how I feel about both those trailers. I love the book trailers that make them look like movies, but they make me want a movie version of the book too! Jessica Brody has awesome trailers for her books.

  3. I just saw the Gotta Keep Reading one for the first time yesterday. Our newest English teacher called it to my attention. She began by saying "You know that Black Eyed Peas song..." only to see a bewildered look on my face. Then she showed me the video.

    I really like book trailers. I keep having this idea of having my 6th graders create one for a favorite book. Then I lie down until I regain my senses.

  4. Kathy-I tried to get some of my teens to make a book trailer last year, but they didn't go for it. I think they like watching them instead!

  6. Wow - those book trailers are amazing! They remind me of movie trailers! They're production company quality. Very impressive!

    Also, the Gotta Keep Reading video makes me so happy to see that so many kids/teens are celebrating books! Yay!
