    Same video, same music, but book train was carrying “Mein Kampf” the whole time…

      I can see people sending the most offensive books to mess with people.

      Yeah, it would turn this video into a single long build up to a joke you didn’t see coming. So the audience watches the long interesting ride and at the very end, it is revealed, that the cart was carrying a very terrible book. It could be sth less offensive but still funny, like “Boobs, why do we like them?”
      (don’t know if that’s an actual book title, but you get the idea 🙂

    i think it’s more practical to just have a digital system. Digitize all the books and keep the original copies forever-stored in a controlled environment. A reader can then just access the digitized book through a tablet or other electronic device. It’s faster, uses less energy, and takes up less space. This also avoids the fear of readers damaging the books. Normal wear and tear will eventually lead to the books needing repair or replacement.
