Book Trailers

For those of you who don't know a "book trailer is a film or video advertisement for a book which employs techniques similar to those of movie trailers." Via Wikipedia - Book Trailers

They're just as funny and sometimes theatrical as your usual trailer except these get you amped up for a good read.
