Smells

The word for loving the smell of old books is “Bibliosmia”.  Similar to carbon-dating, scientists can analyze the chemicals responsible for “old book smell” to determine the age of a book.  The process is called “material degradomics”.

 

Speaking of “Smells”, be sure to follow the delicious smell at the Clearwater Senior Community Center at around 1PM on April 13th where one of our teens will be doing his part for the “Cook Booking”.

Reading fiction can help you be more open – minded

Studies from the University of Toronto showed that readers of fiction as more open- minded than readers of nonfiction, “Although nonfiction reading allows students to learn the subject matter, it may not always help them in thinking about it.  a physician may have an encyclopedic knowledge of his or her subject, but this may not prevent the physician from seizing and freezing on a diagnosis, when additional symptoms point to a different malady.”

Reading fiction is just good for you!
