I just found this neat YouTube video that features various stars and best-selling authors telling you why books make great gifts. You might have seen it before–it’s been out since Nov 2008–but I only just saw it. If you haven’t seen it, give it a watch.
The video features Elmo, Martha Stewart, Jon Stewart, Barbara Walters, Dean Koontz, Maya Angelou, Mary Higgins Clark, Kathie Lee Gifford, Bill O’Reilly, Christopher Paolini, Frank McCourt, Arianna Huffington, Deepak Chopra, Julie Andrews, Cesar Millan, Carol Higgins Clark, Alec Baldwin, Deidre Imus, Jim Cramer, Nora Ephron, Dan Brown, Judy Blume, Jonathan Lethem, Scott Westerfeld, Rachael Ray, and John Lithgow.
I thought Maya Angelou and Julie Andrews were the most heartfelt and moving. But I was glad to see some YA authors in there! How about you? Like the video? Don’t like? Why?
Know of another good book video? Let me know.
