I’ve often written about what we do at Booklist and how we do it, about our recommend-only policy, the staggering volume of books we review, and the people we’re reviewing for–but, until now, I never had a visual aid.
Fortunately, Books for Youth Associate Editor Daniel Kraus, who in his spare time writes novels and makes documentary films, was able to play Cecil B. DeMille to my Charlie Kaufman, or Frederick Wiseman to my Zak Penn, or . . . well, really, we just worked from an outline. But it was fun to take a day off from reading to make a commercial about reading. Can you name any of these Booklisters?
