Old book smell. This could go on several of my pinboards because books are "Homey things I <3", "Inspirational", and "Artistic Wonderfulness". I love the smell, the feel, the look of books. Books on my shelf, in my hand, on my table, on my floor. Books everywhere!

magicalplacetobe: THIS IS THE MOST GORGEOUS ANTIQUE BOOK EVER AND IT IS FRENCH AND I WANT IT REALLY REALLY BADLY. Be quiet, you say irritably. Quit all that yelling. You’re getting on my nerves. My followers talk to me in my head, or, I should say they criticize berate and correct me in my head. My real life followers are much much nicer, thank goodness. image by Kateimi on flickr.
