The question is "Are you old enough for it?"  Wink

But should it include the subtle hints of cigarette smoke that seems to accompany old used books?  I'd think that'd be a plus.

Interesting thought on both. I am old enough to remember smoking in a book shop.

Overstuffed chairs, and standing ashtrays every two feet (the kind that had pipe and cigar holders on them).

Ah nostalgia...

Then there is that sent of a used bookstore. That musty combination of mold and larvae insecticide.

Maybe you stumbled over a major marketing point for CPs:  insecticide-free with no second-hand smoke cancer risks.

Of course, the way the Logos indexer heats up the PC innerds, I'm not sure which would kill you first.

Keep in mind that buying e-resources eliminates a large percentage of that moldy/musty smell that accompanied all that old money that now resides in Bellingham.

One big reason server rooms with profitable companies are  filtered so carefully.  The germ contamination must be unbelievable.
