The Huffington Post has two articles on Book Videos. The first one was called “19 of the Best and Worst Book Videos.” The latest article is called “Book Videos: 7 More of The Good, Bad and Ugly.” I thought it was a bit funny that after the first videos ran, folks flooded the site with more low budget homemade videos. Also, both sets of videos available on Huffington Post start with the same author for his book, Buying Cigarettes for the Dog.
Some of them, like the one for Buying Cigarettes for the Dog are clearly amateur. Some seem quite polished and professional. Some you’re not sure whether the book being promoted is for children or adults.
You can watch each set of videos by clicking the links above. You’ll either laugh or cringe or smile. If you do go watch some of them, come back and tell me what you think.
If you'd like to see more book trailers, go over to L. Diane Wolfe's blog. She's hosting a Book Trailer contest.
