Create book trailers of favorite books using still images found using Creative Commons licensed images on Flickr (and Creative Commons audio).

Then, create QR codes for each book trailer and stick the QR code on the related books. Students can also make QR codes that link to author video interviews, author web sites, official book web sites, etc. Anything that will promote the book in their hand.

A good selection of book trailers on the web site Book Trailers for All
http://booktrailersforall.com/
Some are student made and serves as a good example of what a book trailer is.

Thanks for letting me share!

I create READ posters I display in my library of teachers and students. They do generate a lot of interest.
I'm not keeping it up anymore (since I moved to a new school this year), but my http://linderobooks.blogspot.com/ has book talks done by students and by me.

Writing a short, concise, quality book review is a challenge! Using the Twitter style, create a short book review that hints at the story, not give TOO much away - add a shortened link to the Amazon book listing (for more information, buying, and expanded book reviews) and your emotion rating.=D
If you cannot say something in 140 characters or less, then it is not worth saying. Paring a review down to 140 characters and a rating really forces reviewers to get to the essential appeal or flaw of the work being reviewed --AND it's a challenge!

I never booktalk without technology. My baseline use is to scour Youtube for brooktrailers published and created by the book companies themselves and embed into a SMARTBOARD lesson. I recently used response clickers and had two choices on the screen. Students clicked in the book they wanted to hear about ( no trailers for this lesson, but it was not necessary). Then, the books that did not get selected went into a playoff round. The response to this was overwhelming. Everyone engaged, from the most reluctant learner to the most avid reader. Kids were shouting out comments to persuade their friends to 'vote' for their choice.
Very fun.
I will email the lesson and lesson plan if you would like it. You will need to open the content in Turning point, a response clicker system, to get it to work, but it can be opened in power point as well, just wont have the clicker ability.

We have a web site we call the Library Learning Commons and in the "Read" section we have featured books, recommended books and an "If you like..." section, and book trailers created by the teacher librarian team.

We also tried a 6 school-wide blogging project for students in Gr. 7, 8 and another project for students in High school. In this project students were invited to blog about books selected in the Red Maple (Gr. 7/8) program and the White Pine (high School) program. These books were nominated titles for reading programs sponsored by the Ontario Library Association, with winners selected by students across Ontario (http://www.accessola.com/forest2011/RedMaple/). Teachers and Teacher librarians were responsible for the initial posts and the students picked up the discussion following that.

My biggest tech related book promotion this year was introducing my students to Destiny Quest and its social features. Since my students started using Quest, they are keeping digital shelves of books they have read and want to read. They are writing book reviews and recommending books to their friends to read -- all online on Quest. Some of my teachers have gotten into it too, and they are sharing recommendations with their students as well.Blog post about Quest - http://www.mightylittlelibrarian.com/?p=419

Not exactly for promoting, but a great follow-on trick for identifying when you remember that you saw a book promoted, but don't remember a lot about it:

"Before school got out, my librarian recommended this book by some guy that she loved as a kid. It had a silly title about hamburger. It was kinda dark blue. What was it?"

Go to Google Images. Search for [hamburger book]. In the left-hand panel (that column on the left side of the page) find the boxes of different colors. Click on the dark blue one. VoilĂ ! _My Darling, My Hamburger_ appears in the first row.

(Note: If lots of people try this out you may need to find another book as Google learns what folks are looking for.)
See above. But it works with anything. My first-ever demo of this was looking for "that pink book on Rosa Parks." Write me if you need more.

Students are required to make a book commercial for their favorite book read while in Sixth grade. First students storyboard their commercial including character descriptions, voice, theme, conflict and other literary elements. Students may choose any technology format but most choose xranormal, prezi, or animoto.I will in two weeks, when projects are due.
