At the Moby Awards


Okay, book people, get your best red-carpet duds out, cleaned and ironed. Thursday (which you probably already know since you read this blog religiously) are the Moby Awards. Yes, that’s right, the now-annual awards show devoted to the best and worst in book trailers is back and ready to rock your face.

Given this, we thought we pick a few of the vids at random to run on MobyLives today and tomorrow from each of the official categories. Again, since we can’t show all of the nominees in a single post, those featured here are random picks meant to convey the diverse cross section of entries and in no way represent any sort of favoritism. (You’ll have to bribe the judges if you want yours to win.) Enjoy.
