Drunk on books…..


bookshelf with booksI found this weird word in the Reader’s Digest….what do you call a person who reads too much? A bibliobibuli! Now, that’s a mouthful, and no kiddin!
Here’s the etymology: The term was coined in 1957 by H.L. Mencken, who said “There are people who read too much: the bibliobibuli”. From the Greek “biblio”, meaning books, and the Latin “bibulous”, from “bibere” (to drink).”
