But what to do in this age of e-books and the cold plastic odor of an iPhone or Kindle? Your worries are over. Oh, and do note they offer a crispy bacon option too. So, for those of you who thought the bacon covered Bible was a good idea, well, there you go. Thanks to alert reader: Bob E.

    Can we contact the producers and ask for an "old book smell" option. I really prefer my books to be older smelling…you know, that "used book store" kind of aroma…

    Your wish is granted, jW!

    Note the "Classic Musty Smell" or the "Eau You Have Cats" smells.

    I love this quote from Stephen King:

    "Books have weight and texture; they make a pleasant presence in the hand. Nothing smells as good as a new book, especially if you get your nose right down in the binding, where you can still catch an acrid tang of the glue. The only thing close is the peppery smell of an old one. The odor of an old book is the odor of history, and for me, the look of a new one is still the look of the future."

    It hung in the front of my high school English classroom, and I stared at it every day for two years.

    I love the smell of old books in the morning.

    One of my first happy Facebook experiences was finding and joining "The Ancient and Most Noble Society of Book Smelling."
