#Bibliosmia — That #OldCoolBooks smell!

(Thanks, @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego, for teaching me this word!)

This lovely little hand-bound copy of Tennyson that I found has a wonderful old book smell.

Thank you to everyone for participating! I had so much fun seeing all of your Old Cool Books this month! I‘ll post the winners by the end of the week.

I‘m hosting a fairytale themed #CoolBooks photo challenge for June, if you‘re interested! 😚

DebinHawaii What a beautiful copy! 🌺🌸🌼Love it! Mahalo again for the fun photo challenge. I truly enjoyed it.💜 2y
Linsy @DebinHawaii I‘m so glad! I had a blast seeing everyone‘s collections. 😍 2y

#OldCoolBooks #bibliosmia

My aunt passed away in January & bibliosmia-the love of the smell of books-makes me think of her house. We moved to Oregon the summer I was 12 & since school hadn't started & I knew no one, I did a LOT of reading. We'd go over to dinner every few weeks & I'd wallow in the musty smell of her rooms full of books. She'd let me fill a bag with Harlequin romances, then exchange for new ones the next time.
RIP, Aunt Dot.💜

MicheleinPhilly Lovely story. ❤️ 2y

LeahBergen Oh, that‘s a lovely memory. I have fond memories of an aunt of mine who let me read all of her historical romances when I was really young. ❤️❤️ 2y

ReadZenRites What a terrific aunt! 😊🌸💕 2y
robinb I have an aunt who I call my “other mother”. In some ways I‘m more like her than my mom, including her love of books which my mom doesn‘t have. So sorry for the loss of your special aunt. (edited) 2y
Linsy Awww, how sweet! She was your book dealer. I‘m endeavoring to be that for my nephews. She‘s my role model! 👏👏👏 (edited) 2y
fleeting Awww "she'd let me fill a bag then exchange new ones later." I think most readers have had a relative/friend like this. A book godmother. In return, I do the same to others! What a fantastic mini story this is, Deb. :') 2y

What a wonderful month of old cool books! This challenge gave me a greater appreciation for what I own. So much so that I bought a special bookcase to house my vintage books. Every time I open the door I get a gentle waft of old book smell. 😀

I come to this amazing bookstore to work Monday to Friday (going on 13 heavenly years) @Linsy ... I get my #Bibliosmia fix almost every day! 😊🤓 So I‘m surrounded by many #OldCoolBooks most of the time! On the weekends I have two home libraries to tide me over so I don‘t suffer from withdrawal 😎


Linsy How wonderful!!! I‘ve always wondered how it‘d be to work in a bookstore, so I‘m going to volunteer at a new little one starting next week. You book sellers can‘t hoard all the fun! (edited) 2y
CoverToCoverGirl It is wonderful and you‘ll enjoy your volunteer time.. Thank you for hosting this challenge @Linsy .. It was great fun and so enjoyable to see everyone‘s OldCoolBooks.. This is my very first completed challenge ever! 😊🤓😎❤️ 2y
Linsy @CoverToCoverGirl Congratulations! 🎉 I‘m so glad you enjoyed it!! 😁 2y
