I inhale them, myself.

I personally love the ones that I can drink in... take a big sniff, then swallow, and it's like you're drinking the smell and YUM.

I know from my work that books have widely varying smells. For some reason, most of them smell like some form of food to me, if they smell like anything at all. Tangerine is common, as is pizza. :)

Really? My books tend to smell like catnip or coffee.

Most of the ones I deal with are brand new academic books, so perhaps that makes a difference? I have to admit, I've never sniffed my personal, more recreational collection at home (lol).

I associate my book smell with, well... book smell. It always smells like variations of paper and ink (don't get my started, though, on how I huff freshly pen-written pages...), never anything else. Some are memory-smells, reminding me of libraries from my past. Although with textbooks, I've gotten almost good enough to distinguish between publishers, based just on the smell.....
