Yup, I said it. I sniff books, and I’m being honest about it. I don’t know what it is, especially with new books. I believe that true writers/authors sniff books. It’s a way for us to emotionally connect with the books. I like the smell of new books when I walk into a bookstore. It’s just so emotionally captivating. When I reach out for a new book, I would look around me before putting it close to my nose. Or if I buy a new writing book to write my drafts in, I would always turn to the first page, give it a sniff, before penning down the words. I love it.
