Elvis, Bono, and James Dashner

Such a cool video! This is Elvis at his best, in color. He's cool, and he knows it.

U2, especially Bono, define cool. They don't need to flaunt their coolness, they just are.

And what does author James Dashner have in common with Elvis and Bono? . . . (crickets chirping) . . . Well, he does have one of the coolest book trailers I have ever seen. (Warning! This might scare little kids.)

Seriously, though, James Dashner is one of the coolest authors I've ever met. Doesn't that trailer make you want to run out and get the book RIGHT NOW? You can find it on Amazon if it's too cold outside, or if you're out shopping, make a detour to Barnes and Nobel. It's published by Delacorte, so it's out there everywhere.


Remember to enter my post-Christmas giveaway. Maybe I should call it the Boxing Day Giveaway. Yeah, that sounds better. You can have one entry per post you comment on. I'll put everyone's name in a hat and have someone impartial pull out the winners on December 26th.

See you tomorrow!


  1. That Maze Runner trailer is pretty darn awesome! I still need to get my hands on a copy!

  2. I've decided to not watch the trailer-- I already want to read The Maze Runner so much, I'm afraid this would just be torture! But if I ever get a copy, I'll come back to your blog to watch the trailer first!

    Merry Christmas!
