Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme I found over at BermudaOnion’s blog. This meme shares new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!

Last week I shared a fun word about stealing books. This week is another bookish word. I know I suffer from this ailment, so I thought some of you might too.

Wondrous Word

Definition: The fear of running out of things to read.

I found this word on the Express Writers website. From internet research, this is a fairly new word to the English lexicon.

I hope you enjoy this word. Do you suffer from abibliophobia?

  1. I can say with some certainly that I do not suffer from this fear! I fear running out of time to read everything that I want to!

  2. I don’t suffer from abibliophobia now, but I sure have in the past. I think I have so many books on my TBR list, that it will be a while before I run out. Great word though…

  3. I don’t! But I do have a serious fear of running out of time to read. I always tell my books I’ll get around to re-reading them, but never do, so there’s always something for me to read. Though I suppose that might change when my kids are older and I actually find more time to read.

    1. Yeah, I always thought that about older kids too, but I haven’t really gained more time to read. Other things fill the time but I never know what those things are. Only that there still isn’t enough time to read all I want. ?
