Add the "Smell of Books " to your Kindle

Smell of Books offers aromas for your Kindle so you won't have to miss the smell of books, whether the "New Book Smell" or the "Classic Musty Smell."  No longer do you have to differentiate between those who are book-readers and those who are book-sniffers, as they keep telling us Kindle-owners.

Well, this was just too funny to be real, so I poked around to see who was behind it.  The site is registered to Nero Tarlev (AKA Nero Rang) and here's a nice picture of the fellow.  An expert in virtual worlds, he also Twitters and knows how to work the Net.  Check out his Durosports site
"...I had nothing to do with “Smell of Books.”  Our product that we are releasing and recalled in a single day...In some cases New Books Smell labels were inadvertently affixed to cans that actually contain new car smell."
Then below that is a nice send-up of The Authors Guild, guardians of Kindle ears and noses.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
