How do you select books to read? Do you review the book cover? Get recommendations from friends? Check popular book lists? Perhaps you watch the movie and then decide to read the book. Digital BookTalk® combines the best of these options with brief videos which act much like popular movie trailers. In a video of about 2-3 minutes long, Digital BookTalk® introduces a book’s basic story line with student actors or vivid photographs and narration. Similar to a movie trailer, these Book Trailers® highlight key scenes and provide enough information to help a reader make an informed book selection.
