On the Prowl – Video Booktalks

I’m on the prowl again – this time for more video booktalks to share with my students.  Today I’ve been browisng Vidlit. The site offers several ways to search for video booktalks:  author, title, genre, and popular.  By clicking on “popular”  I found

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl by Barry Lyga. This vidlit is cleverly done and I’m sure would encourage my students to pick up this title.

Clicking on “genre” supplies “Young Adult” as one of the genres, but few titles are offered here. I’d love to see more, but do like one other feature here that SLMS could use:  you can download Vidlits for your iPod.
