A Complete Guide To All Bookworms' Bookish Fetish

According to the Google dictionary, the word 'fetish' (noun) means 'a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc.' But wait, there is another meaning which we are mostly unaware of - 'an inanimate object worshipped for its supposed magical powers or because it is considered to be inhabited by a spirit.' So when bookworms talk about having a book fetish it does not remotely relate to anything sexual (you have a dirty mind *smirks*) but they mean that bookworms are devoted collectors of and caretakers of every bookish stuff available in the market. We are completely head over heels for our books and related products. Some of the bookish fetish that we have are:

The most important fetish is collecting books and arranging them in our bookshelves. It also includes rearranging them. On a side note, if this becomes a problem and one cannot contain her/himself from doing this time and again then it may be a obsession disorder/hoarding disorder. But fear not, it is completely normal for us bookworms. You may say that it's one of our many hobbies. *winks*

We arrange our bookshelves time to time according to our moods. Some arrange it according to colour, some according to genre, some according to size and some arrange it alphabetically. You never know what exactly goes in our minds.

We don't constrict ourselves to just hoarding books. But we like everything related to books. Here are a 'few' things -

Assorted designed bookmarks ~


Themed cushions and bed covers ~


We have bookish pins ~

We also possess DIY jars and journals ~

Mugs are a must ~

Also, we require heavenly candles ~

And last but not the least, we worship our themed t-shirts ~

Let's not forget the tattoos (that a few bookworms dare to do) ~

Some bookworms are also very active on social media (no, not Facebook). We have pages dedicated to books on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and many more, just to spread our love for books. Remember that these pages are our coveted shrines and so never mind about bookworms hyperventilating about these pages. So you can also say that we have a fetish for maintaining our pages.

This is my shrine on Instagram.
Do check it out. ;) 

Also, we bookworms don't like if anyone harms our prized possessions. We can immediately turn into dragons and turn them to ashes with our burning gaze. So, as an advice I would like to tell all the non-readers that if you borrow anything related to books from a bookworm remember that there will always be consequences.

As a conclusion I would like to say that our bookish fetish are completely harmless and normal just like us. :)
