How many times have you been in a library or book store, or someone's house (even your own) closed your eyes, and reveled in that 'old book smell'?

What does it suggest to you?

For me it's summers under the weeping willow reading impossible books while fortified with soda and black licorice.   

- - - - - - - - - - Or in my grandmother's attic,
 pawing through old, family boxes.

- - - - - - - - - - Or reading on the sofa with my mom,
 often books from those same old boxes.
