Probably Not a 19th with this Report

Transcription of first 15 seconds:  Well, a few years ago, we all heard that libraries might not survive the ebook revolution, and that books themselves might be going the way of the 8-track tape, so what is the latest chapter now.  Mike Castellucci set out to get a new read on the brick-and-mortar library and its contents.

Then, from 0:35 to 0:44, we have some footage of the interior of a Half Price second-hand bookstore.

After which we get to ride with Mike on a bookmobile.  Mike seems to have dispensed with his read on the brick-and mortar library and its contents.

Stick with it til the end, though.  Mike's report improves after its cringeworthy opening minute. (Mike, by the way, is the winner of 18 Emmys.  You could have fooled me with this effort.)

Sidebar:  I can imagine Mike being the type of guy who wears a lampshade at parties, although in Mike's case, I suspect it would be done out of purely sober silliness.
