So, who knew that book trailers could be so rad?

These are my three favorite book trailers:

1. Etcetera and Otherwise, by Sean Stanely

2. Monoceros, by Suzzette Mayr

And a really close third:

3. The Nobodies Album, Carolyn Parkhurst

Though I haven’t read any of these books I think that it’s really cool that the trailers can be used to convey a tone that lets readers know what to expect, without resorting to literal imagery or boring talking heads. I think it’s a really exciting way for literary culture to stay here, in the present, and for readers to begin their relationship with a book in a fun way.

It’s like book trailers are a party where you can meet your next great read, well before you bring it home to bed.
