. . . why old books smell the way they do? I love that smell. I could wander around a used or antique bookstore forever. This is one reason why I'm so reluctant to get an e-reader. There's something charming and comfortable about a genuine ink and paper book, especially an old book, that you don't get with a screen and a bunch of pixels. Books soak up the history around them, just like people.
