As if you need another reason to love books

Have you seen “The Joy of Books” yet? You haven’t? Then you must—simply must—take a minute to watch this absolutely and whimsically delightful video of a bookstore coming to life at night.

The video was created by husband and wife Sean Ohlenkamp and Lisa Blonder Ohlenkamp and their team of volunteers, with awesome music by Grayson Matthews. If you enjoyed it, the Ohlenkamps are also responsible for “Organizing the Bookscases,” a similar video done on a much smaller scale with a pair of bookcases. Read an interview with Sean Ohlenkamp.


  1. What a delightful video 🙂

    Makes me almost feel ashamed to be an ebook addict these days 🙂

    I still adore my dead tree collection, reduced though it may be. Now I just keep the beautifully bound, lavishly illustrated volumes that will never find their equal in electronic form.
