More mania….. bibliomania

Bibliomania is an obsessive-compulsive disorder involving the collecting of books to the point where social relations or health are damaged. The purchase of multiple copies of the same book and edition and the accumulation of books beyond possible capacity of use or enjoyment are frequent symptoms of bibliomania.

Just when I was about to be cured Max has to go and reccomend a book!

    Bugger. Just when I had binned all those other bullshit diagnoses, you had to come up with another one…

    Vanessa you are welcome….another lable! Max is passing out a get out of jail free card with the books she recommends. It works for me !

    So, does bibliomania apply to unbound papers, as well? In other words: general paper clutter? 🙂

  5. Jennifer replied:

    If it affects your relationships or your health it could but I think that might be called hording.
    Either way…… It was just a tree ……… set it free!

    I refuse to answer the following questions: Why do we have to buy more books? Isn’t this what the library is for?

  7. Vanessa replied:

    Questions? What questions?

  8. TheFirm replied:

    Those questions are asked, whenever I scratch the bibliomania itch.

  9. Jennifer replied:

    I was told it was not contagious.

  10. TheFirm replied:

    Maybe not, but it leaves a nasty rash, and may induce punning. 😀
