Bookstores have always driven me crazy. So much to read and so little time! And now with our lives chock full of CONTENT–Netlflix, podcasts, social media, YouTube, and the 24 hour news cycle–when the hell are we supposed to find the time to get through a book? This has haunted me for awhile now. So I decided to make a film about it, hoping to find a way through my bookstore anxiety–a way to re-balance my content diet in order to read more books.
