If your mood is crashing after you digested all that leftover Halloween candy, we have something much more wholesome to perk you up.

October Books in Southampton, England, needed to relocate down the street, but anyone who’s ever moved a house knows what an expensive, extensive endeavor it is.

(Can you imagine if it was only books and furniture — no pillows and bedding? Yikes!)

So staffers put on their thinking caps and came up with a cheap and cute solution: Invite volunteers to take part in a gigantic book-passing chain.

Two hundred people formed a line five hundred feet long and managed to pass two thousand books over in just an hour Sunday.

And that’s not counting the generous local shops who shared tea with the volunteers.

Make this feel-good story even better by listening to the British accents in NPR’s segment on it.
