There really is nothing quite like a real book. Animated by Sean Ohlenkamp and shot at Type Books in Toronto, “The Joy Of Books” is a great stop motion animation short about a bookstore that comes alive at night. Put down your Kindle, Nook, or whatever you have. Go to a library or bookstore and pick up a real book. Enjoy the feel of turing the pages, the musty smell, wonder who else has read the very same copy you’re holding. That’s reading, not staring at some screen and switching over to play games every 20 minutes. C’mon, you know you do it.
