the two hundred year old book smelled like tea...fragrant, earl grey tea. fitting, since the book was a little old tome of english law. i expected the book to smell like dust, to choke me when i inhaled the scent of its pages, but it did not. nothing gritty or awful rose from the pages, just the wonderful scent of tea. if the book weren't library property, i'd be tempted to brew one of the pages to see what it tastes like, to see of the pages of this book were made of tea, if they made such magical, mystical books in 1806.
