interesting Part 2

Dear Readers, 

I found some very interesting facts about books and readers.  

Bibliosmia‘ is the enjoyment of the smell of old books.

Ford Madox Ford recommended that readers judge a new book, not by its first page, but by its 99th, the better to gauge the book’s quality.

Only 2% of the 1.2 million different books sold in the US in 2004 sold more than 5,000 copies.

The word ‘shrine’ comes from the Latin scrinium meaning ‘chest for books’.

The people of India are the world’s most average readers. On average, an individual will spend around 10.7 hours a week just reading!

Happy Reading,
