"The Last Bookshop" is a delightful 20-minute video set in the future, about the power of reading.

"As a lad," says the elderly bookseller, "We all queued up at midnight for a book about a wizard. It was the vogue."

Made by BakeryTV, it's an affectionate look at how we might forget the art of physical books, but their power will never disappear. Also, the principle villain in the piece seems to be an all-knowing digital monster called Gamazon. Hmm... sounds familiar...

Watch the video above and then let us know what you think in the comments!
