Stimulating interest in reading via video

Via Simon Evans on the ICTs in English  listserv

This is a great new initiative by Simon Evans and some of his friends from various locations around the world.  It is the sort of thing that you could do as a promotion for library week.  You have to make a commitment to reading a book a week and videoing yourself talking about the book and post to the Bookfighters channel on YouTube.  Simon then created his own channel which is here.  How cool is that?

I’m thinking this has possibilities for school libraries.  Have a look at the Channel and watch the videos, the introductory one is embedded below.
