The Totally Hip Book Reviewer’s Gift Guide

Need holiday gift ideas?

Washington Post fiction editor Ron Charles‘ Totally Hip Book Reviewer video series introduced three literary products this week: the bookly (a literary parody of the Snuggie), Spine perfume (the scent of the Library of Congress), and the Doogk (an eReader for dogs). The video is embedded above.

In Charles’ words, the Doogk is “the handy, beef-flavored, eReader for man’s best friend. And the tough raw hide construction provides extra teething pleasure no ordinary book can match.” Julie Klam, the author of You Had Me at Woof, makes a cameo with her dog, Fiorello, to endorse the Doogk.

Charles’ first video book review starred Mona Simpson‘s novel, My Hollywood. He has since reviewed Jonathan Franzen‘s FreedomMichael Cunningham‘s By Nightfall, and rounded up the fiction finalists for this year’s National Book Awards.
