A ha! This hot guy was caught red-handed, er, red-nosed while smelling a book. It’s okay. I’m a book sniffer too. There are basically two types of book sniffers: those who prefer older books and those who prefer brand-new books. I enjoy the perfect scent of a fresh, new book. I hope our submitter asked this hot guy if he had smelled any good books lately.
