"That's a great deal to make one word mean," Alice said in a thoughtful tone. "When I make a word do a lot of work like that," said Humpty Dumpty, "I always pay it extra."

   Are you a librocubicularist?

I discovered today that I am a librocubicularist.

Mind you, if a word begins with the magic letters 'libr' (from the Latin for book) there's a good chance I'm one.

A librocubicularist is simply 'one who reads in bed'.


 Now it just so happens I know someone who reads somewhere else (don't you, GB!).  But I don't think that has a name yet...


  1. Well, I am definitely a librocubicularist. And I am sure there are words for people who do a lot of their reading on public transport, such as I.
