Random Bookish Stuff

The Kansas City Library

It’s like an Alice in Wonderland library, don’t you think? 😉 Sourced from here.

The Cardiff Public Library


If you’ve always loved the musky, musty scent of a library, now you can smell like one too.


The CB Experience: In the Library scent is described as

The Scent

English Novel taken from a Signed First Edition of one of my [the creator] very favorite novels, Russian & Moroccan leather bindings, worn cloth and a hint of wood polish

Available in absolute perfume (eau de parfum), water perfume (eau de toilette) and home spray (obviously for those who rather have their rooms smell like a library than they themselves).



I made this with the Ancient Parchment Generator. Cute!


Now test your punctuation! It’s based on Lynne Truss’s famous Eats, Shoots & Leaves book about punctuation.

    I guess being a 25% stickler and having it tell me all the time I’m wrong isn’t a good thing, huh?

    And I think i pretty mcuh read all of the books ont he second picture.

    nylusmilk: well, as a gamer and blogger you don’t have to be punctually correct all the time. 😉

    i could only make out dan brown’s angels and demons and two harry potter books from the picture!

    You didn’t say how you scored, ny. I got 75%, but I like to be creative with puctuation.
    I love books, but I’m not sure I want to smell like one.
    The KC car park is the way coolest library building I’ve seen! I’ve read some of these books–can’t make out the titles on all. What a fun bookie post!

    nylusmilk: i scored almost all correct, but only because i read the book. 😛

    i don’t know what’s a bookish scent, but i’d give it a try. i already have a perfume that smells like chocolate!

    same here, my eyes aren’t as good as carocat’s. cats have great eyesights after all! 🙂

    thank you! random stuff are usually fun really. 😀

    Heh, I wear glasses, so my eyes aren’t that great!

    Right, I see:

    2 Harry Potters
    2 Patricia Cornwells
    2 Sidney Sheldons
    1 Nicci french
    1 Halran Coben
    1 David Baldacci
    1 Colin Forbes
    1 Tess Gerritsen
    1 Mary Higgins-Clark
    1 Josephine Cox.

    There are about five books I can’t make out and I can’t see which ones they are, but considering I’ve read all the books of the above authors, I’m fairly certain I’ve read the ones dispayed!

    Do I win a prize? 😀

    nylusmilk: unadulterated admiration from the squinting duo that is muse and i! haha. :mrgreen:

    I’ll second that! Whew, how’d you see all that, cat?
    So, it turns out I’ve read about half of these. Better get busy!

    Well, compiling that list took me about five minutes. But I do have my bookcase with those books right here, so I know how the back of those books looks like!
