VIDEO OF THE DAY: The Bookstore After Hours

Ever wonder what happens at a bookstore when the customers and workers have gone home? Well, at Type bookstore in Toronto, the books come to life, courtesy of Sean Ohlenkamp, his wife, and many volunteers.

This stop-motion video was made over "many sleepless nights" after hours at the bookstore. It features an original score composed by Grayson Matthews Music + Sound, and it just might make you rethink picking up that e-reader.
