About meMy name is Jessica and I’m a bibliophile. They say admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery but I don’t think it helps when you’re addicted to books. At least, I’ve conceded to being an addict for most of my life and I’m still a bibliophile. Despite my addiction, I’m still able to function in normal society. But then maybe I’m not addicted so much as in love. There’s a difference between being a bibliophile and a bibliomaniac. Bibliomania is a brand of obsessive compulsive disorder whereas Bibliophilia is an extreme hobby. Really it’s like comparing a raging alcoholic to a Saturday drunk. It’s all a matter of degrees.
About my libraryMy library is an eclectic mix of fiction and nonfiction. Many of my books are acquired from library sales which I anticipate with the same childish glee normally reserved for Christmas.
