Watch a book on TV!

Been meaning to look into this. BookTV is a a YouTube channel to promote books. Good books for preference. Can't say that I've heard of the books they are talking about, but that could well be the point, to promote them! Also have author talks and other stuff.

For example, this advert review for the Kobo. Wasn't convinced by the idea, and now that I've seen a little of it in action, it looks like a cheap and nasty knock off. People are emphasizing the cheap, but I really think we should demand more for our money that this. This looks like the sort of third-world product you'd seen being sold on TradeMe. Ugh. (That said, I might be willing to buy one for a third the price...)
