The Last Bookshop

This short-film is very well made, and funny. And I can't deny feeling sorry that book stores are closing. I also miss LP cover art.

But still: it's the content which matter, not the book. If you take out the content from paper books, all you have is dead trees.

And the content is not about to die. On the contrary, ebooks and ereaders are already making stories and dissertations much cheaper and much more widely available in all the countries of the world. Surely nobody is against that, even if they are nostalgic for the smell of slightly mouldy paper?
