News & Opinion: Book Videos
The website will introduce books based upon "personality" rather than publication date (paid subscription to the WSJ required; article: Book Channel Bound for Internet). Videos will be two minutes in length and cover how book ideas are sparked and details on the author's life. Due to appear are bestselling S&S authors such as Mary Higgins Clark, Zane and Sandra Brown.
And, S&S is letting consumers use the video in a manner of their choice.
