I have seen book advertisements on the real TeeVee (trailers if one so wishes to name them) and I take a look. I gotta say those static ones with stills and prose and generic music do not help the cause.

Poetry videos, short story videos, live readings, spoken work performance, audiobook links, animated storytelling videos, documentaries about writers, book trailers, author interviews, and anything else you can think up that combines literature and other media. Basically, this is an underground YouTube “Literature” category, since YouTube does not have a category for literature. If you upload a literature video to YouTube, be sure to link to it here so that it can be collated, curated, and enjoyed by its proper audience.
To celebrate, we’ve embedded “The History of English in 10 Minutes,” an excellent literary video that must be shelved under Film & Animation because YouTube has no literature category.
