Hello there! I recently rearranged my bookshelf and got rid of some old picture books and organized my favorite classics, my newest TBR books, etc.
But today we are not going to talk about my rearranged bookshelf. We are going to talk about smelling books!
I have divided my favorite books to smell.
Fresh Off The press
Fresh off the press books have a smell that I think is just so wonderful. The brand new pages mixed with the just dried ink just…smells good!
A few years ago, my first grade teacher gave me used library discard books and I remember loving the way that they smell. They smelled just like they should smell, loved.
The smell of a book that has been touched by hundreds of different people and seen hundreds of different houses smell so very old and they have a unique, interesting smell.
Books that smell like absolutely nothing are such disappointments. I would rather have one good smelling books than hundreds of books that smell like nothing.
Do you like the way books smell?
bidding you a bookish farewell,
