The smell of a new book

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by on 14/07/2013

"I'm in here, dear!"

"You don't take sugar, do you, Maureen?"

"No, dear, I'm already sweet enough. You should know that by...COASTER!"

"Sorry! Er, Maureen, what on earth are you doing?"

"I've just bought a new book, dear. There's nothing quite like the smell of a new book. You have to get your nostrils close enough so that your nasal hair is almost tickling the surface. Then you take the deepest of breaths and drink in the wondrous scent. It's almost as if the book's alive!"

"But, Maureen, you're getting nose prints all over the screen of your Kindle!"
