At any rate, over at the OxfordWords blog, Lili Feinberg published "10 unusual words for book lovers" to mark the occasion. These aren't ten words that mean "book lover," but ten words that book lovers ought to know.
And there are more than ten of them.
The first and last entries hold the most meaning for me:
- tsundoku: A Japanese word meaning the act of leaving a book unread after buying it, typically piling up with other unread books.
- scripturient: Someone who has a passion for writing.
