This week's video choice is BALLAD from Maggie Stiefvater, it is the sequel to LAMENT. Maggie drew several hundred frames and composed the music for the trailer; the music ("Nuala") is played by her on harp, keyboard, whistle, & bodhran & and Kate Hummel on fiddle. Simply brilliant





ALSO, THE HOT NEW VIDEO FOR HUSH HUSH BY BECCA FITZPATRICK. CLICK ON THE BOOK COVER AND IT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE SUPER SWEET BOOK TRAILER

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
