I sniff books

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

@Naeryan: there are certain Publishers that Reek(mostly college texts, like Thomson), so I'm also in favour of the eBooks.

One of the many reasons why I love Borders.

I thought I was the only one. THIS is why ebooks won't take off.

I bought this one book, and it sucked, but I kept it around JUST for the new book smell. It still has the smell after like 5 months.

Isn't it sad when the lovely smell of a new book fades?

Yeah, I was afraid I was the only one out there. It's a closeted fetish. I can no longer walk into a used book store, walk to the books, and just buy it cause it looks interesting. It needs to be interesting and smell like a book. Sigh
