I have mixed feeling about book trailers. I like the idea of them but, in reality, they don't really do much for me. I find a lot of them to be pretty cheesy with bad special effects and bad acting. I tend to like the ones without actors in them better though it's still pretty hit or miss. I also don't really know if I believe that a book trailer would actually get people to buy the book. For me, it's cool to see trailers for books and authors I am already excited about but I am not sure if it would get me or someone who isn't a big reader to try out a new book. I think it's great that publishers and authors want to take the time to promote these books and make trailers for them but I don't know how effective they are.
What do you guys think of book trailers? Do they make a difference in your book buying habits?
