'Your Guide to Memphis Bookstores'

"Sure, downloading an e-book is convenient... but it lacks the cerebral, emotional and sensory experience of being surrounded by printed books in a bookstore or library," the blog noted. "There are the valuable human exchanges with knowledgeable librarians and booksellers. Then, there's the feel of the pages on your fingertips, and that alluring scent--a fragrance so beloved by bibliophiles, you can purchase paperback-scented perfumes and candles."
