Bibliomania is an obsessive-compulsive disorder involving the collecting or hoarding of books to the point where social relations or health are damaged. One of several psychological disorders associated with books, bibliomania is characterized by the collecting of books which have no use to the collector nor any great intrinsic value to a genuine book collector. 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.

Bibliomania is not to be confused with bibliophily, which is the legitimate love of books and is not considered a clinical psychological disorder.

Other abnormal behaviors involving books include book-eating (bibliophagy), compulsive book-stealing (bibliokleptomania), book-burying (bibliotaphy), book burning (bibliocaust), etc.


Yes, "etc."

Flying Humanoid Filmed Over Mexican Skies.

This video is pretty great. I was bored at first but when they showed the eyewitnesses being given medical exams that seemed pretty disconnected in time to their sightings, I was sold. I guess it was meant as a re-enactment? Also the debunker lady towards the end is fun.
