Oh faithful print subscribers: We’ve had a few observations/complaints about the smell of the March/April issue of The Horn Book Magazine. While it is a special issue (“Books Remixed: Reading in the Digital Age”) we did not intentionally supply it with any kind of odoriferous effects; nevertheless, when I put my nose to it I do feel slightly transported to a forest of tiny pine trees. Not at all unpleasant to me but perhaps it’s like cilantro: some people taste heaven, others taste soap. If you have a copy, take a whiff and let me know what you think. If you don’t, why not pick up a copy and smell for yourself?
Do we pass the smell test?
