Books make great gifts – Youtube video

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.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.

    Thanks for sharing this! I agree with you about Maya Angelou and Julie Andrews. Of course, I was puzzled–is there any other gift BESIDES books?
