1. I think I‘m more of a voracious reader than a bibliophile.
2. To me a bibliophile collects books for their own sake, and because they are beautiful works of art. A voracious reader will happily read the back of a cereal box.

1. Both - I never see the need to limit myself to just one thing.

2. Bibliophile is someone who collects or has a great love of books. And yet, someone can collect & love books without reading them.

Thanks for the tag Lisa!

TheSpineView You're welcome! Happy Tuesday or is it Wednesday for you? Regardless, have a great day! 1h

1. Bibliophile 🙂
2. The need to collect (it's not hoarding) books and bookish things! And talk about books as much as possible!

1. A total bibliophile 🤓
2. A voracious reader loves to read, a bibliophile loves to read and feels the need to have all things bookish in and around their lives.

1: a voracious reader. I don‘t really care about the format that much. I read print, ebook, and audio.
2: to me, a bibliophile is a person who loves and collects physical books. They are interested in the book as a object or art form as well as in its content. They may have several editions of the same book because of the differences in appearance. If I have duplicates, it‘s because I forgot I already owned the book.

1. I'm a Bibliophile 😊

2. Voracious readers read books. Bibliophiles love them. (I'm a lot better at loving books than I am at reading them! 😅)

julesG 100% spot on! I'd give the same replies. 9h

1. Is it cheating to say I‘m a bibliophile who also happens to be a voracious reader? I love talking about books, being surrounded by books, thinking about books, reading books of course and, well generally everything about books.

2. I suppose one difference might be the distinction between reading books and collecting books and the degree to which someone engages in one or the either or both activities.

#Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView
📚 Are you a bibliophile or just a voracious reader? What do you think is the difference between the two?

Both. Bibliophile because I love books as objects, as art. Adding books to my library is one of my great pleasures. Voracious because I read a ton. No matter how many books I read a year, it will never feel like enough!

Pictured is one of my favorite books about books. Holbrook Jackson was a true bibliophile.

TheSpineView Thanks for playing and happy Tuesday! 🤩 7h
LeahBergen I‘ve not read this and I LOVE books about books. 👍 7h

1.Definitely a voracious reader, you require quite a bit of privilege to be a bibliophile in a world where space is increasingly at a premium!
2. Bibliophiles like the physical act of holding a book as much as the book itself!Would be nice to be one,but can't live in a city and have a house large enough for it!
Highly recommend the tagged book,a gorgeous bibliomystery about collectors and books

📔75% voracious reader, 15% bibliophile

📗📘 Lots of books I must keep for a variety of reasons, but many more that I donate or share with friends and family.

LiseWorks I am a 100 % voracious reader. I read from my tablet. If I read a real book it's because it was given to me and I usually pass it on. I really do not keep books. 11h
TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 👍📚💙📚💙 10h
jlhammar Thanks for the tag! If a book doesn't fall under the really like or love category for me, I pass those on to others. Usually via my Little Free Library. That way my home library consists only of my favorites and books that I haven't read yet. 9h
SusanLee Thanks for the tag! I think I‘m 50/50 😅 43m
