Smell Of Books Sprays Are Just The Thing For Those Sterile eBooks

Smell of Books Sprays (Images courtesy DuroSport Electronics)
By Andrew Liszewski

I’ve yet to convince my co-workers to make the switch to an eBook device, even though they’re all avid readers. One of the biggest stumbling blocks is the whole ‘paper book experience’ they feel they won’t have with a flat electronic device, like being able to turn physical pages, curling back the cover or even dog-earing the corners. But one excuse they can’t throw in my face anymore is the lack of that new (or used) book smell, thanks to the Smell of Books aerosol eBook enhancer.

It comes in 5 different scents including New Book Smell, Classic Musty, Crunchy Bacon Scent (for the breakfast reading experience) Eau, You Have Cats and Scent Of Sensibility. Just a quick blast of Classic Musty for example makes your Kindle smell like that copy of Moby Dick was dug out of the basement of an old used book store, and the sprays are compatible with a wide range of eBook formats and devices if you’re worried about your model not being supported.

    This is hilarious. I'm not so sure people like the smell of books as much as they like what's associated with it. That musty smell means the book has history. I don't think a musty smelling electronic would really do quite the same thing.

    Are these sprays sold next to the fake Christmas Tree scents for a plastic tree? And the “crackling fire” CDs for your gas fireplace?
