What is a scientific name for a collector of books?
Ambulist is a man (it could be a woman) who walks forever. Discophile is one who studies and collects phonograph records or CDs. And labology is relating to the hobby of beer label collecting and information regarding breweries, their history and allied subjects.The word "bibliophile" literally means a lover (phile) of books (biblio). The term is often thrown around to refer to people who simply like to read, but in its most precise interpretation, "bibliophile" means something more specific: someone who loves books particularly—how they look, how they smell, what they feel like. Of course, most bibliophiles are great readers, collecting books in part because they love the narratives in them. But they also value books as fascinating objects in themselves, objects with their own stories to tell. These are readers who will never really be satisfied with electronic books.
