Book Chat: 5 Senses of Reading!

The Five Senses of Reading


This tag was created by Youtube Channel theteenreads. She asks us to explore our senses and smell, taste and feel some books! Bit of a weird one but I went with it!

SMELL- What is best smelling book and worst smelling book?

I am one of those people who likes the smell of old books. However, I was a bit suspicious when the 'old book smell' picture started going around:

Apparently it is bullshit: 

I still like the smell of old books though and I think whoever 'someone who works in a paper factory' is sounds very bitter! New books smell good too. Books that smell bad are damp books that have been dropped in the bath. Ugh.

FEELING- What do you like your books to feel like? (The cover texture)

I usually much prefer the feel of hardcovers because they are, for the most part, more silky and just feel nicer! I also like covers with texture and unusual fabrics or cloth bound books. I like owning unusual books so anything other than paper is probably going to get my attention.

SIGHT- What book made it feel almost as though you were watching a movie in your head?

Recently, I read the play 'Sweeney Todd' by C.G Bond and it was very much like watching a film in my head! Lots of villainous asides and stirring cauldrons.

In terms of action, reading 'The Immortal Rules' by Julie Kagawa was just like watching a vampire/action film right inside my brain!

SOUND- What is the best book you have read about music?

None. I don't think I have read aa book about music. I do want to read 'Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist' by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan at some point though:

TASTE- What book made your mouth water of delicious descriptions of food, etc.?

To be honest, I can't think of many but I did absolutely LOVE the descriptions of food in the Harry Potter books. Pumpkin Pie, Butterbeer, Bertie Bott's, Chocolate Frogs, all the Feast food...mmm.

I remember reading 'Like Water For Chocolate' by Laura Esquivel a long time ago too which, although an awful book, did have some yummy food descriptions and recipes in it at the start of each chapter!

That concludes my 5 Senses of Reading. Sensual.
