Robert Gray: Memory & the 'Smell of Books'

I will confess that I am one of those that enjoys the smell of books. Real, paper, bound-with- glue books. Leather and hand-stitching books. So this, of course, caught my interest:

Robert Gray: Memory & the 'Smell of Books'

I love that there are those that can categorize the odors in and on books. Each classification brought a distinct aroma with it. That smell of 'literary dust' is an intrinsic part of literacy to me. And I love the link with other people that feel the same way.

(But please don't bother to buy me a can of "Smell of Books". I thank you.)
