Book Trailer: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Via Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings.

Like Carl, I haven’t paid much attention to book trailers. Well, to be more precise, Carl says that he “poo-poo[ed] the concept.” I didn’t poo-poo the concept, but I often forget about their existence altogether, and some of them are pretty good vehicles for generating interest in a book. Like the one above. I know after reading Carl’s glowing review of the book and viewing that trailer, I decided to read it.

Social media is great for sharing reading. I decided to read this book soon based on a blog post and YouTube video. I have my Goodreads account publish books I add to my to-read pile on my Facebook profile. My mother-in-law bought Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children after seeing my post on Facebook that I intended to read it.

  1. Social media is great for sharing reading. But after only a week and a half on Twitter I've already been to the bookstore twice, so it is not so great on the pocketbook! 🙂 Can't complain though, I am two for two with loving books tweeted by someone else.

  2. Yes it can, and already has been! Ah well, its not like I really ever need any prompting to go to the bookstore to spend money. 🙂
