Pausing to Taste Such a Beautiful Word

Vellichor.

I have learned this word for the first time today.

Vellichor is the “the strange wistfulness of used bookstores”.

Who among us, the readers, have not experienced this? Now there is a word for it.  Thankfully, it is a beautiful word that adds even more delight to that wistfullness…..
