Introducing the New and Improved E-Reader with … Scent!

bookshotFrom the newswire: “Today the new e-reader with scent and tactile pages debuted to great acclaim in New York City. It is hoped that this new device will satisfy those sensory-fixated hold-out buyers of Kindle and Nook.”

The answer to my prayers! An e-reader that transmits the delicious smell of mildewed pages and the comforting feel of paper beneath your fingers! Could it be?

It’s a little late for an April Fool’s joke but nonetheless I hope you won’t fault me for trying. The scent and feel of a book (a new or old one, preferably the old one) are what I’m holding out for and why I won’t buy an e-reader. There are other reasons, too, such as my insistence on limiting screen time.

I also relish the act holding an actual book in my hands; it sends a message to those around me that I am not just playing a game, engaging in online banking, or checking my email. It’s a “Do Not Disturb” sign.
