Have you ever watched a book trailer? Like a movie trailer, a book trailer is designed to inform and excite us about an upcoming book release. And like movie trailers, some do a better job than others.

A book trailer is built on images and sounds that we readers are supposed to be supplying with our imaginations, some say. Others think book trailers are fun and could generate interest in books and reading.
