Did you know that books are made up of compounds very very closely related to vanilla and rosin? That’s why as the book ages and begins to break down it releases that amazing, slightly sweet vanilla smell.
Packing goes much slower when you feel the urge to hold each book close to your face and thumb through the pages just for the smell. UNF.
Took this awhile back x
