Today’s Video: Bibliomania

For this week’s weekly video, I chose an interesting animated short film called “Bibliomania”. Directed and animated by Rosalie Osman, the film follows a man named Thomas Phillips who inherits his father’s library as well as his craving for books. As Thomas desires to collect even more books he turns to the town to feed his ever-growing collection and things get out of control.

Collecting/buying books can be a glorious thing. But this animated short shows readers just how quickly things can get out of hand! Not only do they take up lots of space, but it can cost you lots of money. I’ve personally had to cut back on acquiring new books since I don’t have a large space to store them.

Question of the week: How large is your book collection? How do you acquire most of your books? Share your thoughts in the comment section below! 🙂

  1. Oh dear. I think I have about 600 physical and e- books, the majority of which I haven’t yet read. I really need to weed out the ones I will never read but whenever I think to do so, I get this feeling that soon as I get rid of them, I’ll want to read them.
    I buy a good bit of them but some were free as well.
    How large is yours?

      1. I guess most of us are a little guilty when it comes to our collection. I need to do that too and focus on reading my own books. I get distracted from them so easily.
