I'd have lost patience about 3 shots in. That was a very cool video.

And, you're right. This wont really be feasible on a Kindle cause all those books will be in one convenient location and that shelf space will be used for something worthwhile! Like...bottles of bourbon, silly hats, and snacky-cakes.

Call me a contrarian, or a curmudgeon, or a stick-in-the-mud, but ehhh.... It's a nice video, but it glorifies the book as an object. I'm more interested in what the writer had to say than how the publisher printed it on paper and sold it.

I've just put the link back because embedding doesn't work well. This video is in HD and deserves to be seen full screen. Why is it embedded videos don't allow resolution changes and full screen?

Don't get me wrong; the video's very cool and all, but it's hardly a valid argument for why ebooks can never replace "real" books... " 'cause stop-motion videos wouldn't be nearly as cool??"

I could do a similar video with all the papers from my filing cabinets, but that wouldn't stop me from wishing they were all digitized and wishing I was using that space they were taking up for something much, much cooler.

It's actually a book store in Toronto called Type Books. Here's a link to the story in the Toronto Star.

The book business must be booming if they had the spare time to produce that.

It's a very nice video--but it's about the joy of books as art, as decorations, not about the joy of reading.

There are uses to shelves of books that ereaders can't do, including easy showing them to your friends so you can loan them one of your favorites. (Even where that's allowed for digital files--public domain, Baen library ebooks--there's no easy display for that.) And yes, there is "something about a book;" they're reassuringly solid. But they're no longer the easiest way to read stories, and movies about how great books look on shelves aren't going to change that.

The movie, after all, doesn't show anyone reading those books. It barely shows any words at all aside from the cover art.
