“On the first birthday of Barnes & Noble Studio, B&N.com has introduced Blogging Booksellers, which features B&N booksellers from stores around the country who post video blogs made with Flip cameras about books and authors they recommend as well as events and news about their stores. Their material will be updated weekly. There are currently 11 vloggers; more will be added. The booksellers will give “a friendly face to their local stores,” the company said.” –http://www.shelf-awareness.com/index.html
This is an interesting concept, and I think that people like getting book recommendations from a real person. There are a few kinks to work out, and once the booksellers get more comfortable in front of the camera it will probably be a more interesting watch. Although I did enjoy the bookseller from Arizona who had the good idea of including two cute kids into her vlog.
