The Joy of Books: This Video Will Make You Wonder Why You Own a Kindle

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Books are wonderful, wonderful things. I love my Kindle, I really do. But this video makes me realise just how much I love the hard copy: the crack of a spine, the smell of the paper, the turn of the page. My Kindle doesn't do those things: it just runs out of battery.

OK, so maybe I'm being a touch romantic, but this wonderful video by YouTuber crazedadman is stunning. According to his YouTube page, crazedadman spent "many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at Type bookstore in Toronto" with his wife. I'm glad he did.
