'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' On The Joy Of Printed Books (VIDEO)

"Books smell... musty and rich. The knowledge gained from a computer... it has no texture."

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a cult must-watch for fans of intelligent narrative and monsters from the Hellmouth.

So you may not be surprised to learn that Joss Whedon is also a fan of the printed word - at least, if this YouTube clip from one of the episodes, featuring Giles the librarian is anything to go by.

As one of the commenters says, just nobody tell him about the Kindle.
