Kind Of Awesome: The Joy Of Books

This is a rather wonderful video about the joys of a real book as opposed to an ebook.

I dread to think how long this must have taken to film! Moving all of the books around to get the effects created in this video would have taken days of work and an army of volunteers. It was filmed at Type bookshop in Toronto.

I love bookshops. I could happily spend an hour browsing in them. Can’t do that with ebooks!

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.

    Nice one. I can easily spend more than an hour browsing a bookshop, but then I can spend just as much time browsing Project Gutenberg for an ebook. 🙂

    With an ebook, I have found my youngest son reading more and since we live in a rural community about thirty minutes from a somewhat decent library and bookstore, the ebook has become a positive technology in my household. We do love the once a year library sales!
    Thanks!
