Book Trailers Bring Out the Mystery on Your Bookshelf

Readers of Library Journal who are interested in the mystery genre know Teresa Jacobsen, who has reviewed new mystery titles for the periodical since my kittenhood, way back in the day.  Recently she contacted my minions to ask about moi and our YouTube Channel's mystery/drama book trailer playlist, which, you may remember, I recently split into two playlists to make them easier to use.

Guess what?  Ms. Jacobsen mentioned moi in her current mystery review (July 2012 issue).  If I wore socks, you can bet they were knocked off by that!  Wow!  She said some very nice things (thank you very much!).  This is pretty exciting for our little library.  Well, for moi, anyway.

Want to see the article?  I hope so.  I had the Lady With the Red Hair photocopy it.

Actually, Scowl-Face looks like he was trying his best to hog the limelight.  He "forgot" to mention that the Lady With the Red Hair worked with him to create most of the Library's mystery book trailers.  In fact, some were primarily hers, and he helped just a little.  But we appreciate the shout-out, especially in a publication as important to librarians as Library Journal.  If you're a librarian, you read LJ, plain and simple.

Ms. Jacobsen mentioned our book trailer for Miranda James's File M For Murder.  Minions, make with the reprise.

We love Diesel and his human, Charlie Harris, who is a catalog librarian, just like the Lady With the Red Hair.  As a mystery-solving team, Charlie and Diesel get into some tight spots, but they're smarter than the bad dudes, so things work out by the last page.  We've made book trailers for other titles in the Cat in the Stacks series, which are included in our mystery book trailer playlist.  Conveniently, it appears below.

Our new drama playlist is below, too.

Separating them was an improvement.  It saves having to search through all those drama titles to find the mystery ones.  Now, you don't have to!  Two for the price of one, as I said in my previous blog posting.

Thanks again for Ms. Jacobsen's kind words about my Library's videos and blogs and, particularly, about moi.  Now I get to use one of my favorite lines from Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray:   "[T]here is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about."

Hope You Enjoy Our Mystery Book Trailers,

P.S.  Speaking of the limelight, here's Rush with "Limelight," from the LP Moving Pictures (1981).
