You know that feeling when you finally finish a good book? There's a sense of accomplishment, but also some sadness because it's over. For this baby bookworm, however, that sadness is simply overwhelming. He just can't even.

In a video that's going viral, you see Michigan mom Alicia Stevers read her 10-month-old son, Emmett, a host of books. His attention is rapt with each page read, and then comes the last page. "The end," she says, and immediately the baby bursts into tears, even throwing himself on the ground. He's just so devastated — every time.

The only way to get him to stop is to start reading another book.

Adorable, right? Kids throw tantrums over all sorts of things, but if we had to pick one for them to really get upset over, the ending of a book is a pretty good choice. Hopefully this guy's love of books will be a lifelong passion. And how about that shirt — "The snuggle is real"? Cuteness overload!
