not at all!!!!!!!!!
No, I ♥️that smell.
No, not at all. Sometimes when I walk into the room with my books in, I’ll just pick a random one up and have a smell ☺️
If you’re weird, I don’t wanna be normal!! ? I do the same thing. The smell of books, especially old books, is my drug!!
No. Absolutely not!
Not at all. I was given used children’s books and the first thing I did was smell them ??♀️?. It’s an automatic thing with me
@Patricia It is automatic! I do this in book stores too! Lol
“And those who were seen dancing were thought insane by those who couldn’t hear the music.”-Nietzsche
I too love the smell of books.
Nope. I’m the sams
Not at all. Unless we’re ALL weird… lol
I love to check on my books, sorting thru them, looking at them, enjoying their presence and the memories they bring.
@Kae Me too! I look at them every day…almost as if to make sure they’re all there.
Not weird at all. Not in my book.
Perfectly normal for a reader.
No. I love the smell of books, too.
No at all ??
No. In our library at home are books more than two hundred years old. They smell like history.
@Barbara Wow!!!! I don’t have any older books! I may have to remedy that!
I’ll randomly take my books off my shelf and smell them ❤️
@Kelly Same!!! ❤️
No i love the smell of books and touching them
I actually go to Barnes and noble when I’m not feeling well just the smell of the bookstore makes me feel better
@Sharon OMG Yes! I love the smell of book stores so much!!!! It’s so comforting!
Same here ! Has to be new ones though ??
Heck no Amy. I can feel my blood pressure go down and a happy smile on my face from the smell
No way! I lie and watch tv holding a book. It’s like a comfy blanket! ?
@Lynsey I do that too! When I’m not reading the book, I’ll hold it against my chest. ???
All the best people are weird ? And besides, if someone doesn’t get it you can’t help that they’re wrong ?
Yes, we all are
My aunt does it all the time
I love the smell of books and l love crocheting really nice book marks
No, you aren’t!!!
Nope, I love the smell, but hadnt hadn’t ever thought about it till now.
@Donna You’re welcome. Lol
I love it too. I remember even getting books in the mail when i was a teen and I wouldn’t wait for them to arrive. I’d open up the box and just smell them. It wasn’t just the scent but the knowledge that adventure awaited.
No. One of my favorite smells
Nope!! I sleep with books when my husband is gone
Whenever my husband buys a new book, he asks me ”can I sleep with it tonight?” ?
@Abby Hahaha LOVE that!!!
No, not at all. Traditionally, the best books were printed on hemp paper.
If you are, so am I.
Just touching books, looking at books or smelling books brings me a sense of peace! Always has!
Yes, it’s a club for us. You’ve arrived
Not weird at all!
The print of a new book and the age of old book pages and the feel of the paper and binding ? bliss. I have been known to just inhale the smell of a new book before I read it, my partner thought it a bit odd but then I explained that to me it’s like him hearing the turbo chatter of an Audi Quattro rally car, now he understands totally lol. So no I don’t think it’s just you or odd at all
Nope you aren’t weird…..I couldn’t agree more’
No but only a book lover like myself and others who reply would understand that.
@Mary I’d be smiling too!!! Wow!
It’s one of the many weird things about us book lovers
And it’s part of our charm
@Irma Those are so cute! ???
@Irma those are LOVELY
Nope….unless I’m weird too….which is also possible.?
nope not at all prefer the book smell
It’s like my morning coffee
I’m with you there. Beautiful.
Not weird! I feel the same! If I could move in to a library or a bookstore, I would be in heaven,
Not weird. I’d rather hold & smell a real one than an e-reader.
Not at all! The feel the smell the sight of books makes my heart race! Makes me feel like first love Everytime! Makes me feel ecstatic! So you are perfectly normal…if not more than perfectly normal!
Oh and another thing that I haven’t really noticed but my husband has is that I apparently start drooling at the sight of books…he says I look literally like a dog who has seen a mountain of bones or meat or something.
@Dhanya I am like that, too!
Nope… I’m the same way with crayola crayons
I carry one wherever I go like a comfort blanket
Nope. The smell of books is calming. Smell a book. Snuggle a pet (in my case, cats).
No, you are normal
Absolutely not ??♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
Are you kidding? Not weird at all.
No, you’d be weird if it wasn’t!??
