I've been trying to read
...Acquainted With the Night, but the book stinks. Literally. It smells strongly of dust. It's like walking into an old abandoned house. I got the book back in November. I don't know if it smelled that way when it arrived, but it's bad. I can only read a few pages before I have to put it down. At this rate it will take me years to finish it. Because it's my first experience with an overwhelmingly dusty-smelling book, I didn't believe my nose at first. So the other day I said H, smell this will you? Smells dusty he said. Now what to do? So I did a bit of googling. If my dusty-smelling book is actually a musty-smelling book, there are things I can try. I really like what I've read so far, so I guess I'll stand it on end, fan it open and see what happens.
