The Guardian brings us this awesome doc where they meet a pair of Norwegian booksellers who are keeping people reading during Coronavirus.

Pil Cappelen Smith and Anders Cappelen own a popular bookshop in the centre of Oslo. When they heard that people were being told to stay indoors, they were concerned that their business might not survive. Bookstores are already under pressure anyway, so they had to come up with a innovative and safe way to keep their business going.

So they decided to don full hazmat suits and create a process where they could take clean books to people who needed them across the Norwegian capital. In a time where people have more time to themselves than ever before, having great books to read is really important. On top of that, the two sellers like the social aspect of what they do as well. Even though they can’t spend much time with each customers, checking in with some of their regulars is really important for them. Did you enjoy the video? Let us know in the comments below.
