This video won an Oscar this year as best animated short. It is long at 15 minutes, but well worth watching in its entirety. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for posting this, it made my morning coffee ever so much better. Books have been my solace, my inspiration and my source of perspective in a pretty insane world. This video captures my relationship to books, a real joy to watch.

    I am very glad that the film was selected as an Oscar winner.

  2. Thank you so much. I don’t know that I would have seen it otherwise and I would have missed out on something wonderful.

  3. Thank you! It really says what books are all about. It will be a “keeper” to look at over and over. Plus, I will be sharing this with many, many friends.
