Book trailers

One of my favorite things when I go to the movies is getting there early so I can see the previews. I love the words COMING SOON. I even have my own system for deciding which movies I will see at the theater and which ones I will wait to see on DVD.

Now, I have a way to see what new books I want to read: book trailers. Book trailers are video previews for books and they are growing in popularity. Authors and publishers post book trailers on their websites. Youtube and GoodReads also post book trailers. There are even some websites devoted to book trailers (Book Screening and Book Trailers). Fans of books can create and post their own book trailers (hint hint- if you are looking for something to do this summer…). So, the next time you are trying to find a book to read, check out the book trailers on-line and “see it before you read it”!

Here are some of my personal favorites:
