     I've always opened any new book I had and inhaled a good lung-full. I not only am excited by the smell, but I figure it somehow primes my brain for the reading experience. This is also why I never use libraries.

    Oh, Good, I'm Not The Only One...

    I adore the smell of a new book, and the fresh clean pages. It has a very clear and fresh smell to it. I love it. One of the reasons I would never get a Kindle or Nook...you mess out on that smell x)

    Mmm Mmm Good

    Nothing can lift my spirits more, take me to more places, and just simply make my nipples hard more than the smell of a new book.

    Always Have

    No matter what kind of book that it is. I seem to like to smell it. I can't help it at all. Its who I have always been. It doesn't matter if its old or a new book. I still love to smell it.

    Mmm Page 14 Smells The Best.

    dear library, you just fascinate my nostrils with your keen scent of bookware. So what if people spy on me when im sniffing books. the literature just tingles my nose. The library is my new favorite spot, especially for a scentsation.
