I smelled a book and I liked it.
It’s actually hard to find that New Book Smell that I love so much because a lot of books aren’t as fresh off the presses as I’d like. During my brief stint in publishing, we got in a batch of brand new books. At least four of us stopped to inhale and enjoy the New Book Smell.
Part of my birthday book haul made that a bit easier to accomplish. One of the things I got was the B&N hardback of Winnie the Pooh stories. I’d loved this as a kid but I’m honestly not sure I’ve ever read the stories or just watched them on Disney.
This beautiful book came shrink wrapped so was able to peel off the wrapper and inhale that fresh book smell.
