Monica (haydemon) | 1 comments I just joined this--what appears to be--a lively and interesting group. I think I fit the description on the group's profile, in that I can NEVER pass a bookstore without going inside, very seldom do I ever LEAVE a bookstore without walking out with AT LEAST one book under my arm (paid for, of course), and I have MORE BOOKS in my house than I have shelf space for. I'm literally--pun intended--bursting at the seams, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I have lately kept up with my reading by listening to books on tape while I commute. This has been a great way to stay in touch with the literary world--a kind of pleasant multi-tasking, if you will. Having said that, I feel nothing can replace the sensory experience of holding a book in one's hands, smelling its pages, and knowing that it will be there for you no matter what. Anyway, thanks for the opportunity to share.

Sherry Ahhh another page smeller! You are in very good company as there are many of us in the group(even a book licker though he claims there was cheese involved and that it was all on the up and up... :).Let me be the first to say hi and welcome to the group.

Tisha the smell of a book tells its only mini-story. New, Library, old??

Krista (findyourshimmy) | 382 comments Welcome! You are among kindred spirits... I, too, am unable to pass a book store without going in and very, very, very rarely (mostly never) leave without at least one purchase. Of late, I seem to be purchasing in threes.

Can't wait to hear more from you on the message boards.

Laura (apenandzen) It was such a relief when I found out I'm not the ONLY book smeller in the world! (I try not to do it in public - people give me the weirdest looks!)




ahem....Welcome to the club, Monica!

Kathy  (readr4ever) | 510 comments I think that there are quite a few of us book sniffers in this group. I have embarrassed my kids more than once by smelling books in a bookstore. Now they are grown and I can sniff all I want without any negative feedback. Ahh!

Lisa Julianna (lisajulianna) | 1053 comments Welcome...I can't walk by a bookstore with out going in either. I have books on all my shelves you would think that I would just say to myself no more buying till you read what is on your shelf. LOL
Glad you are here!

Hello and welcome. You are in GREAT company.
My most recent book sniffing experience was the other day when I was purchasing American Psycho from the savlo... it looked a little too 'used' and yellowed and i took a whiff to make sure it wasnt stained with something foul smelling.
