the best smell in the world.

I've blogged before about one of my favorite blogs, Forgotten Bookmarks.
I wasn't exaggerating when I said how much I love this blog, but now I love it even more.

First of all, what could be better than old and rare books?
But then add in the things he finds in these old books and it's like a little treasure hunt.
And then! He started holding give aways!
I try and enter them all and last week I finally won!

My books arrived yesterday. I was just heading out to a dentist appointment and there they were, right on my door step. I couldn't stand the thought of not opening them immediately but I didn't have the time so I took the box with me.

I drove a little faster than normal to my appointment so I would have an extra minute to peak at them. So, in the parking lot of my dentist I opened the box and sat for a moment and enjoyed the smell of my prize.
Yes, I said "smell".
Old books, not only are they beautiful to look at but they have the best smell in the world.

I don't know about the smell of books as perfume, but I do love it. There is a used book store here that has that great smell. Great surprise! Enjoy!

I thought maybe your favorite smell would be puppy breath or maybe freshly washed baby. Those are definitely my favorite smells. Oh and I guess the crisp evening fall air... add that one. And vanilla cookies. Well hell, just give me some cookies and I'll shut up.

That's so true, I bet that smell just took you away when you first opened that box.

What a neat giveaway! Lucky you for winning.
