About and Contact

The Smell of Books started in 2010 when it was over at Boomerang Books (and then Booku). You can still find the archive of posts from 2010 and 2011 at Booku. The name of the blog came after one too many frustrating conversations about ebooks that ended with something like, ‘Well, when they invent an ebook that smells like a real book, then maybe I’ll consider it.’

Joel Naoum is a Sydney-based book editor, publisher, blogger and writer. He is passionate about the possibilities of social media and digital publishing opens up for authors, publishers, booksellers and the whole book industry.

I work for a big big big Italian publishing house and I am currently pushing my colleagues to read it. Extremely, extremely useful, full of ideas and insights. Great job!!!! Congratulations
