Go read this post at Library Dust.
I have no idea what libraries do (although Michael certainly raises an interesting question), but I surely wish that magazine publishers would stop stinking up their products. (My wife, who’s pretty sensitive to that sort of thing, is a tad more vehement…)
Right now, at home that is, I’m trying to read the November Conde Nast Traveler. Apparently there was a perfume insert that I ripped out (or at least I can’t find it), but it’s still strong enough a week later that it’s hard to put up with. (But then, that magazine seems to have odd-smelling paper anyway…)
Actually, the other advertisers should demand that perfume inserts be stopped: I don’t look at ads when I’ve given up and trashed the magazine for stinking up the household…
