I sniff books

It's a lovely, woody, pulpy, glue-y smell.

I like the smell of old books best. Although I do love the smell of most books (except the ones that smell of cigaret smoke or some sort of weird printing ink), I find that the older the book is, the nicer the smell. They have got more character to them than newly printed books.

Ahhh... the beautiful musty smell of my very old copy of "James and the Giant Peach."

still not a lot, in the grand scheme of things Sarah, but yeah... not as weird as they might think... not that weird need be an insult/accusation ...

Everybody thinks I'm weird for doing this! Now I know at least 1979 other people who do :)

Can't wait to smell Neil Gaiman's newest novel. I've pre ordered it.
