Whatever happened to new book smell? Do you still have it where you are?

I used to love sniffing the pages of a new book when I was a child. The first thing I did when I got a new paperback was open it up, stick my nose in and take a big breath. This would have been the late 70s, and I assume that I was effectively glue-sniffing, as was fashionable at the time. It smelled great, though.

Nowadays the glue that the binders use (in the UK) is nowhere near as sniffable. I do miss it.

I saw that a year or two ago and very nearly bought it... based on your description, I'm wishing I had, as I suspect it might become difficult to get hold of.
