The Smell and Feel of Books
As someone who loves reading books, there is nothing quite like the feeling of holding a book in your hands. Don't get me wrong...digital books are great. However I love the smell and feel of books.
The smell of books is something special and unique. Especially when you turn each page. It is a combination of the ink and the paper, and for me, it’s a comforting smell that reminds me of home. It brings back memories of childhood, when I would spend hours in the library, or curling up with a good book (and my favorite cozy blanket) on a rainy day.
The feel of books is also something I love. I love the way the smooth texture of the pages feel as I turn them, and the way the cover feels against my fingertips. I love the weight of the book, the way the books fits in my hands, and the way it feels when I hold it up against my chest. It's a comforting feeling that reminds me of the stories I’ve read and the ones I still have yet to explore.
Always remember, books are more than just words on paper – they are a physical experience. For me, there is nothing quite like the smell and feel of books. It is something that I will always cherish, love and hope you would too.
