For that special someone

Thanks to my friend-in-books, Vicky, for sending me a note about the perfect gift for any book lover. Sure would have made a good Valentine, but really, it could be appropriate for any time of year.

i ordered some a few days ago - i will let you know how it smells!
I knew I could count on you to try it out...

Next to my desk there's a glass case with leatherbounds and a few scarce old odds and ends, and whenver I open it, the scent of these books is mellow and almost sweet - I use Fredelka on my leather bindings, and that combined with aged paper is redolent. No mildew though. (Yuck.)
