#609: Odoureading

Smells create and retrieve memories very effectively (as do books).

Today’s invention is a scented strip of paper that is sewn into a book so that the reader comes to associate the smell with the story. Expensive hardbacks e.g. might have the unique odour of ancient libraries built into them.

Each chapter might have a different scent, enhancing the value of the physical book in this digital age.
