Books Dance To Pass Time After Work Because They Can’t Read [VIDEO]

It's Aliiiiiiiiiiiive!

Things you’ll miss when the entire world converts to e-readers: stop-motion book dance routines. Sean Ohlenkamp and wife Lisa Blonder Ohlenkamp reorganized their bookcases at home last year but decided to take a big step further by doing the same for Type Books in Toronto. Grayson Matthews provided the music and 25 volunteers helped shelving and re-shelving the books each night. Their next goal? The Library of Congress.
