Book Nerd is a beautifully illustrated celebration of book nerds. Forget computer games, book nerds rule! This sweet and clever book with mottos and descriptions by fellow book obsessive Holly, shows what separates the book nerd, from most.
A book nerd belongs to more than one library, and has a minimum of 5 books on the nightside table. She uses words like bibliotaph (a person who hides or hoards books), tsundonku (a Japanese word for the phenomenon of buying lots of books, but never getting round to reading them) and librocubicularist (a person who reads in bed). She’s never once thought ‘the movie was better’. Just imagine what a better country we could be, if everyone read more good books!
If you only read the books that everyone else is reading – you can only think what everyone else is thinking. Haruki Murakami
