The smell of old books




There is something special about the smell in old libraries, all those old books lined up, full of magical words written ages ago. It´s magical I think.

I love to visit the library and bookstores. I love to read!

fully fully agree!

one of my favourite memories is of a hidden away bookshop in Lyme Regis, England where i found myself on a very cold December day two years ago. the fire was roaring. the smell of old books was everywhere...

i quite agree. i am not a big reader of books, but that is not to say i am not a lover of them. and the smell of an old book or even a freshly printed one is just one of the many things to love about them.

i have always wanted a room in which every wall was covered in books. there is just such a warm and cozy feeling that comes from that visual. that's what i think when i see these photos.

lovely.

i love it...my personal favourite past time is to go to flea markets and see the second hand book sellers, if you're lucky, you get to see sweet darling messages written by or for the previous owners :)those are priceless...

if i could live in an old, neverending library filled with antique and loved books, i would :)
