So you know, why old books smell. Also see this new research on why old paper turns yellow.

Then again, old-book smell is part of the joy of books.

( r/books)

Books are made of natural fibers, and as those fibers age they continue to change and release volatile chemicals, like vanillin. This gives them their characteristic musty-sweet smell.

Previously: Lignin -> vanillin, or why old books smell good.

I love books and the way the smell and just ASDGHJLKHSDAFGHGKLUUUUUUNNNNNNNFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.
