Bibliophage: a person who loves to read books

Book-Bosomed: someone who carried a book at all times

Chaptigue: the next-day tiredness you experience from staying up all night reading

Helluo Librorum: an obsessive and insatiable bookworm

Perfictionist: a picky reader

Sentranced: memorized by a sentence

Scrollmate: an author with whom a reader feels a deep connection

Smellbound: being captivated by the smell of books

Tsundoku: acquiring reading materials but letting them pile up in one’s home without reading them
