I step in
And inhale
The faint, but wonderful smell
Of books

Books everywhere
Lining every plastered wall
Every brown, sturdy shelf
Everywhere, books

Hidden in these books
Who knows what they will find?
Mystery, adventure, romance, betrayal
Just to name a few

I want them all
But I pick only three
And when I get home,
I curl up in my comfortable, cozy bed with one
And I prepare to go on a journey.

I think it was great the way you added the distinct smell of fresh books because that is the first thing I notice when I go.
