Just when I thought I had seen it all .....

Old book smells for e-books? As a former used book seller and librarian I always gag when people tell me how much they love the smell of books....don't they know that they are talking about mold and dust? So a new e-book company, CafeScribe, claims to be giving a scratch and sniff old book smell sticker to each purchaser of their e-texts.

Wasn't it Mencken that said “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.”
