Sharing Books Can Be Sexy

Good Books, an online bookstore that donates its retail profits to Oxfam, created that steamy web video to remind us that sharing books can be quite sexy. Press play above to watch the slightly scandalous and possibly NSFW video–written in the style of a Mills & Boon romance novel.

Created by the directing team of mcbess and Simon, the film is part of a series that shares “the Good Books story in the style of some of the world’s greatest authors.”   The series also includes Metamorphosis, a drug-fueled video about books.

Check it out: “The Good Books story is unique — and simple. As an online book buyer we ask you to do no more than just buy the titles you want through Good Books. All retail profits are then given to Oxfam to help fight its global battle against poverty and social injustice. There is no mark-up and delivery is free worldwide. Accordingly, all time and effort in creating these films is donated for free.”
