The Best and the Worst of Book Trailers

On Thursday evening, Melville House played host to the first Moby Awards for book trailers—an event the publisher plans on making into an annual tradition.

The complete list of finalists (with links!) is on the Moby Awards website, while Paper Cuts, the New York Times’ books blog, has reported on the evening’s winners, including the ear-grater named least likely to sell a book. Here are my favorites.
