AH!  So many books!!! I want this one...and Ooh this is so good too, and look... there is that book by my favorite author...Wait, here's another one too. Anecdotally,  I know many people who are bibliomaniacs, including myself.  The word 'bibliophile ' means a lover of books.  A more precise interpretation  'bibliophile ' means someone who loves books - how they feel, smell and look.  Of course, bibliophiles love collecting,*hoarding* books. Oh, come on, we all do it! I have been a voracious reader all my life.  I don't ever remember not loving books.  Reading broadens my knowledge.  When it comes to reading my tastes vary on my mood.  My Preferences generally lay on dystopian, contemporary and paranormal  - although- I pretty much prefer reading fiction.*sigh* What I love about reading is that within moments I can be transported to a hundred years back to future unknown, to a world of automatons, gargoyles, fairies, into magical lands and beautiful dresses.  I can escape danger and work on magical spells and potions taught by essentric wizard's. There is so much possibilities... It also helps me develop my vocabulary, so even if my trustworthy friend, Mr Thesaurus, isn't nearby, I can still guess the definition of a unfamiliar word. One of the biggest challenges with reading books is that some of the authors you love so deeply, take their sweet time writing.  Some even 10 years.  *It isn't fair*  I mean not that I'm complaining, its way worth the wait.  In fact I owe my very existence to some of these famous writers,  J K Rowling, Danielle Steel, C. S.Lewis, Nora Roberts, J R.R Tolkien  and many others. Shout out to all the book nerds out there, 'Pat yourself on the back, book nerds, let's commiserate.'  Being a book nerd has some perks. In fact no one reads a book as fast as you can or *knows* exactly when the new books are being shelved. Sometimes you hope no one ever finds out that you NEVER really read that book.  You know the one  I mean.* that book*  "Good, but not perfect", that you will one day finish. I feel you, booknerds. I have one too. Love it or hate it, you a have definite OPINION on books. (No judgement.  In fact, Solidarity ) In my 'tween years' as people call them,  I do confess to reading comics. Its was kind of my guilty pleasure. (shh!) In my defense,*sob*it was just a phase I was going through. Although, somewhat great novels are hidden behind crappy covers. I swear I have the uncanny ability that resides deep within my soul to spot an incredible book based on its cover. Its not really judging a book by its cover if you judge it by the impressively shiny seals adorning its cover. Maybe I  can even spot the next award winner. Ok, so maybe that's a bit judgemental...but truly that's a gift, or maybe a curse😄 Blessings...
