Michelle, on life as a book addict

"I like the smell of books. It's addictive - I wish you could bottle up and put it in a perfume spray, because it would be the best perfume smell."  

Michelle Elliot replaced cigarettes with books five years ago and hasn't looked back. 

"I was a heavy smoker and I had no willpower to give up. One day I took the tablets (to stop smoking), and after that I started going to the library. I couldn't stop reading." 

In the final episode of Season 1 of Meet Me at the Library, we're celebrating books with a book addict, and an all-star librarian.
