If cracking open a new book and inhaling the signature scent of paper and ink transports you to a relaxed place in your mind, one candle company has the soy candle of your literary loving dreams. Dorothy B & Co., a small company based in Brooklyn, New York, has paired up with Scribd on a unique gift idea for any bookworm: a book-scented candle that includes a three-month subscription to Scribd’s vast digital library.

The creators describe the Feeling My Shelf candle ($21) as a “unique candle designed to offer the full, relaxing experience of cozying up with a good book in your favorite place to unwind.” They add, “With notes of teakwood, sandalwood, patchouli, amyris, and dark musk, Feeling My Shelf evokes the smell of crisp book pages creating the true ambience of enjoying a good book.” Each candle is hand-poured and soy-based, with a 50-hour burn time. If your to-be-read list isn’t long enough, the purchase with a promo code for three free months to Scribd, a digital library of over a million ebooks, audiobooks, magazine articles, podcasts, sheet music, and more.
