How Long Can You Go Without Rebooting?...
BookTour, Please Add LibraryThing Support!

Bookvideos_2I hope Simon & Schuster is patient with their initiative. It will probably take awhile to build up enough of a video repository to draw the large audiences they undoubtedly have in mind.  I think it's a great idea because it's yet another way for authors to communicate with readers and it lets them tell more of the story behind the book.

They recently released a widget, which lets you embed these author video feeds right into your blog or website.  Unfortunately for me (and every other Typepad customer using this particular blog template), it doesn't fit in the outer panes of my blog.  Did I tell you how much I love Typepad?...

Here's the widget embedded in a post, which is better than nothing, I suppose.


Ellen Gerstein is a partnership between S&S and Turn Here video. Turn Here was in our offices yesterday and in a presentation told us that they are looking to widen it by including other publishers, which should help expand it's reach. They are defintetly committed to it.

In terms of not being able to put it in your blog, Typepad sucks, don't you know?
