    The Smell Of Old Books

    It might sound odd, but i love the smell of old books :) and i prefer reading actual books compared to "kindles"and other devices, its not the same if there are no pages to turn... i think it adds to the experience!!

    the library, being surrounded by so many books is just awesome. However I hate that the libraries around here seem to like to change their hours all the time and I was bummed that they were closed today because I need some more books to read :(

    and shelve books or just chat with the librarian. My dad pokes fun at me telling me I'm the only kid that when school let's out, goes to find more work! I find the library calming and a magical place to be in after a long day of shouting and crowded halls.
