I Sniff Books by MademoiselleGrief I Sniff Books by MademoiselleGrief
I smell 'em all! New and old!
(psssst.. the Harry Potter books have this certain nice smell so go get one)

I managed to find one book sniffing stamp on here ([link]), unless I didn't look properly so I had to make another to go with it :meow:

A sequel to come.

Happy sniffing.

Lol. I read a really boring book once. But I finished it because it smelled like old book.

In other news, I once purchased a book online that used to belong to the new York library. That smelled awesome!!!! <3

I really thought I was the only one who did this.
So I was embarrassed about it.
Well.

I love the smell of old books too. The breaking down of chemicals make books (old and new) smell nice.

OH MY GOD I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE?!!?!

:iconconfusedshockplz: :icontakasakishockniplz: :iconazusashockedplz:

All this time my Mom told me to not do it in public --or ever--because it was weird.

I do it because I feel that I can tell how dated the information is by how it smells. If it has that dusty or mildewy smell, I know that it's pretty old and I shouldn't read it.. old books are boring books because if it's outdated then I'm basically being told lies.

Example: a 1950s Encyclopedia I read was talking about how the new dance crazes were super sexual and Satanic in nature or something :shrug: Needless to say, it was 1) outdated and 2) smelled old -__-

IKR? The Harry potter books have that whiff of........... magic in them. It's awesome. You should sniff Watership Down, that is a really natury-like smell.
