If you live in Tulsa and haven’t stopped by Oak Tree, then I strongly urge you to go. I know we can all read books on our computers, tablets and even phones now, but I ask you, is there any smell on earth that can replace that distinct old book smell? I love my electronics. But I literally felt my stomach flutter when I passed by the kid’s book section to find the complete Hardy Boy series and hundreds of Little Golden Book standards. Walking by the shelves, neatly full of stacks and stacks and stacks of books, I couldn’t help but feel nostalgic.
