What's the Word Wednesday!


 Those who read too much

The term was coined in 1957 by H.L. Mencken (a year after he died), who said "There are people who read too much: the bibliobibuli".  -

I found this word on a list of fun words over here. doesn't list this word, and it can't be found on , but I did a google search and came up with several hits, most notably a publisher and a fanfiction site for Harry Potter! I find it to be a very interesting word, and wonder that it's not in the dictionary. Odd. Seems like that would be right up Webster's alley...
