Quick Look: Videos from Simon & Schuster have received over 11 million views on YouTube since the book publisher launched its YouTube channel. The Book Stew channel brings many of these videos to Roku users.
Videos on Book Stew generally consist of two types: book trailers, which are done in they style of movie trailers to synopsize the content of the featured book; and author videos, in which an author discusses the story in his or her book. Videos are typically one to three minutes in length.
On YouTube, Simon & Schuster further subdivides their videos with playlists such as Book Trailers, Bestsellers, and Cooking Authors. Such categorization on Roku would help viewers find videos of interest, but for now you will have to browse through the two categories available on Book Stew, Fiction (with 100 videos) and Pop Culture (with 50 videos).
