Bibliophile Defined

Someone will ask me to describe myself and the first thing I tell them is I’m a bibliophile.  It’s most likely that you are too, if you’re reading this blog.  That’s probably what brought you here in the first place, am I right?

However, when I say this to someone, I’m often met with this question…

“What’s a bibliophile?”

I guess I can’t expect everyone to know this term.  I don’t think it’s sad.  I’m sure there are plenty of words that I still don’t know and would need someone to define for me.

So what is a bibliophile?

noun
1. a lover of books especially for qualities of format

also a book collector

That’s me in a nutshell.  I have more books than my brothers have video games, combined!

In recent times I have been trying to be more “space conscious” and buy books on my Kindle but, that hasn’t been going to well.  I just love the look and feel of books too much to really keep my entire library on a small device.  Though I will admit, it makes it easier to travel for vacations and such.

But let’s face it.  Nothing will ever replace the feel of holding an actual book in your hands, and that my friends, is why I will never stop buying books.
