Why old books smell good. Imagine how amazing The Library smelled...before the whole vashta nerada thing anyway
"OLD BOOK SMELL: Did you know? Lignin, the stuff that prevents all trees from adopting the weeping habit, is a polymer made up of units that are closely related to vanillin. When made into paper and stored for years, it breaks down and smells good. Which is how divine providence has arranged for secondhand bookstores to smell like good quality vanilla absolute, subliminally stocking a hunger for knowledge in all of us." -PERFUMES: The Guide
Why old books smell good. Books worth breathing in.

Books Worth Reading
One of my favorite scents #book #smell #oldbooks
I'm not against Kindles at all, but I suspect I'll always prefer paper books. Holding them, flipping the pages, smelling them, feeling the paper, everything.
omg kindles suck real books don't loose POWER
A book will always be a book. A kindle will be nothing but a device.
I have a Kindle, I have tried but never used.
And the thrill of using quaint old handmade bookmarks!
I Love both. ☺
So many books...so little time.
Clone solution: One me gets a good night's sleep; the other me stays up all night reading!

I had that Tennyson Book.. It was my favorite. I read out of it out loud to my sister every night when we were little.. :0) happy times!!
Yes I'm a book sniffer. I love old book smell. Like the classics. Or at least 10 or 15 years old. I love new book smell too. Completely different =)

A bit hypocritical hey lol
Not like you had the choice. I'm sure you'd have gone straight to paper if you could've .
But imagine the trees you'll save!
More impressive, sure, but so much more wasteful.
Why old books smell so good
It's the smell!!! I love it!!! You get funny looks sniffing a kindle on a bus, but sometimes, not very often, someone will give you a look, as if they know the joy of new book smell : D and no I'm not crazy hehe
I love actual books, they're amazing, but e-readers are more conveinient. Books on Kindles, cost less and I'm not carrying tons of books around with me. At school I useto carry like 2 to 4 books at a time and it was a pain. With my Kindle it's a lot easier. I have all my favorite books on me at all times and it's not a hassle to carry them around. Also if I finish a book during school, I can get a new one or at least reread a old one. I love books a lot but I like Kindles just as much.
Kindle is magic...and I love magic. With just a swipe of the finger I can have any book, anytime, anywhere. What more do we need in life?
I perfer books over kindle. While I see the advantages of having a kindle such as having my entire library on hand, I just don't like the kindle.
Good argument lol
Chicago subway. SO COOL. except I'd want New York since I've actually been there haha
