This Is the Future of Book Marketing - 6 views

  •  
    Thomas Loud is a passionate dude. He's intelligent, adventuresome and well-intentioned in his quest to save the world.

    He's also completely fictional.

    And yet his Twitter account, @ThomasLoud, posts two or three tweets a day - usually about some obscure or seemingly dangerous mission overseas.

    Interesting idea having all uni students, staff and feeder year 12 students reading same book. Certainly in my small village a book club which maybe 1/3 population belonged to certainly gave us a conversation starter in the shop.

The best solution for striving readers is the one that helps them learn to read - period."

Book Art | Off Book | PBS - YouTube - 9 views

    "Books are in a conflicted state. Should they still exist in a digital era? Will they all be replaced by Kindles and Nooks? These questions dominate the discussion of books in our time. A select group of artists, who use books as their medium, engage this discussion from another angle. From pop culture pop-ups, to surreal sculptural stories, to reformations of antique sacred texts, these creators re-envision what the experience of a book can be. At times playful, and other times profound, this episode explores the boundaries of one of the most important human creations.
