The smell of newsprint in the morning

For those who cannot part with the smell of newsprint, I present The Times of New York scented candle. It's the work of Tobias Wong, a newspaper addict and lover of the NTTimes. It has a scent described as "newsy, with hints of guaiacwood, cedar, musk, spice, with "a powdery note and velvet nuance," meant to mimic the aroma of black ink on newsprint. "

It's being sold in a limited production run of 1 thousand, and it will set you back $65 (here, here).

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
