World Book Sniffing Day is a celebration of the book as a sensory object, as a carrier of memories and a stirrer of thoughts. This olfactory observance takes place on the 12th December, allowing all dedicated (and curious) book sniffers a chance to unite in their love of perfumed pages and intoxicating ink.
We want you to celebrate the day your way – in happy solitude or with a loved one, zooming as part of your own sniff club or diligently adding your own sniff notes to our online library.
Why not post a book-sniffing selfie on Instagram or Twitter to mark the day or use the #booksniffers hashtag to check out who’s been sniffing what? If you’re planning any events for the day, or have any great ideas, we’d be delighted to share them, just drop us a line.
On Saturday 12th December, let’s all get our heads into a good book and make this World Book Sniffing Day one to remember.
