The Smell Of Books

I love the smell of books.

After high school, when I finally had a car and could make the 8 mile trek over the mountain and into town, my favorite place to hang out was Walden books (another lost relic). The store was small, and the fantasy section was tucked in the far back, beyond a maze of shelved isles.

My favorite thing to do, at my favorite place to be, was to pick up a random fantasy book, quickly flip through the pages, and inhale its musty aroma.

I love the smell of books.

To me, they smell like knowledge.
