  1. I would definitely watch - if the books were good!

  2. I'm not sure, I'd probably check out the first installment, but if it didn't interest me I wouldn't continue to watch.

  3. If it was an author and a series I really liked, I'd probably give it a try. But, 10 min. a month? I'd probably forget the previous month's video.

  4. I'm not sure about the 10 min vid..might be too long..but that's just me. I would consider 2-5 minutes though. And unless I tie a string around my finger, I'm likely to forget about it after the first month.

    Thanks for taking part in this blog hop contest.

  10. Once a month is not very often, and I'd be afraid of forgetting what happened the previous month! Maybe once a week is better?

  12. I'm not usually a big fan of videos and book trailers. But if it was well produced and a interesting story I definitively would watch.

  14. Oh heck yes I would! What a novel idea. haha, no pun intended but I've never seen something like that and would love to see a short based on a book. Better have some hunky men. lol

    I follow you through GFC, lastnerve


  15. I probably wouldn't watch the video, because I think the characters as I imagined them while reading the book wouldn't match those in the video, and that would bother me.

    Thanks for the chance!

  19. Thanks for the giveaway. It really depends on the book. If it's something I'm like obsessed with then definetly but if it's only something I thought was alright I might watch a little but would probably forget/not be bothered.

  20. I would consider watching it if it were properly edited with good music effects.

  21. I would watch if the video was sent to me automatically. With my writing, teaching, managing a home and five children (three still at home...boys...with sports...ohhh the sports), I would never remember to go to the site to see it. I need 'reminders'! Ha! Hope that helps.

  26. I'd certainly give it a shot. I'm always up for something new. My only concern would be whether or not the video manages to capture the characters properly.

    Thanks for the giveaway!
