Scratch-n-Sniff eBooks

How do you include the experience of 'smell' into a techy world? From The Shifted Librarian (Jenny Levine), apparently CafeScribe has figured out how to give people that all-around sensation of reading an ebook. According to CafeScribe (via Engadget "43 percent of students identified smell as the thing they most liked about their favorite books...." To this end, CafeScribe is "shipping "musty-smelling" scratch-and-sniff stickers with every ebook order." Hmmm... I don't know how this would work for library orders.
