Book Trailer Thursday: Walter Potter’s Curious World of Taxidermy
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

As I assume it does in all of your lives, taxidermy comes up every now and again during Booklist’s coffee breaks. Like the huggable or frightening stuffed animals themselves, the topic seems to contain no end of intriguing, curious unknowns, (the most unanswerable often being, of course, why?). See kittens get married and bunnies go […]

In the Booklist review of I Don’t Know What You Know Me From (Doubleday), Kristine Huntley writes, “Greer’s bubbly best-friend personality and self-deprecating anecdotes will have readers rooting for her, and […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Hugo Marston series
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Here’s something a little different: one trailer for a whole series. Watch Mark Pryor very very seriously discuss, in finely accented English, his very very serious methods for trailering his Hugo Marston series (The Bookseller, The Crypt Thief, and this year’s The Blood Promise, from Prometheus/Seventh Street). “I even went to the trouble of sacrificing […]
