Not Books Per Se
My family used to get National Geographic magazine, they had every issue from about 1970 onward, but my favorites were the newest ones, because they had beautiful pictures and they smelled so good. Every time a new Natl. Geographic would arrive, I would flip through it, and every time I pulled two freshly-printed, static-clinging pages apart, I could smell the paper gloss. I remember it smelling pungent and fresh and I would sniff deeply whenever it wafted up to my nose. I hope I didn't damage my brain sniffing all those magazines.
