So I'm a biblipohile. What?

An Unrealistic Request

What can you do to prove your love?

Give me a vault of books as big as your winery’s cellar. I want mountains of books piled to the ceiling and sprawling. Line every wall; fill every nook with archaic tomes, barely legible and musty. I want atlases, encyclopedias, and maps – new and old. I want books fresh from the press. I want to hear the binding crack for the first time, to smell the printer’s ink and gum. Give me novels, poetry, history, essays, and memoirs. Give me the resources to learn how to stop loving you if need be.


The sad thing is, if I didn't love someone and they did this for me... I'd probably take it. If Messr. Fuckhead doesn't come back from Switzerland, that is.

I totally will someday. It's a personal goal of mine, that's why I buy so many books.

Lol! The way you describe the book is a little too sensual. It's like a book fetish or something. I can imagine just moaning and rolling in a huge pile of books. That makes me laugh!

Hence, "bibliophile."

Function: noun
Etymology: French, from bibli- + -phile
: a lover of books especially for qualities of format; also : a book collector
(also) one who recieves sexual pleasure from books.

I love books. They totally engage my senses. I love thin, gold, leaf paper and heavy, crisp, century old paper. Leather bindings & silk or satin bookmarks built into the binding. I will state that I have never come close to bookgasming, but I love books. Clearly.
