Okay, couldn't resist. I love these long phobia names, which is why I used one for my blog's name. :) Life with Abibliophobia. Which, if you deconstruct it comes out as "The fear of running out of reading material.

No I didn't make it up. Found it on wiki.:)

That is awesome! I am a Abibliophobic. I don't know what I would do without books or any form of reading material.

hahahahahaha! that's AMAZING!
Yep, I'm a Abibliophobic also - so much so that I took ten novels with me to Argentina. And I had to have my mom mail me a couple more...

thanks for sharing these, Lerowen!
Blessings,

Honestly, why would anyone be afraid of books? (I almost typed this as "Why would anyone eat books?" Clearly, NaNoWriMo does strange things to me.)

Oh, and I'm an Abibliophobic as well. ;)
