Why don't libraries smell like bookstores?
I assume you’re referring to the difference between the glorious mustiness of a library and the glorious plasticy newness of a bookstore. That’s probably due to the fact that as paper ages, the cellulose within it decays, letting off that sweet, sweet book smell. Bookstore books haven’t had as much time to decay (unless it’s a used bookstore), leading to that different smell.
because there both places with books and maybe books smell a weird way?????????
Because only old people read books, so libraries smell like old people.
The reason, possibly, is that library books have the scent of many homes and people; a cornucopia, if you will, of being handled by many. Bookstores books, however, are brand new and for now lack the character of old books.
because people put perfumes and in libraries they barrow so they goo to a smelly place
because the books haven't been aged and collected with lovely dust thus giving it a different smell than new books. its the same type of deal why new cars smell like used cars. also another reason is that storekeepers use good smells to entice or manipulate people into buying from their store. let's be real who would buy a book from a smelly store? exactly, libraries also aren't making prophet when u take the books home.
