I have suffered from this phenomenon for a number of years, but I never had a word for it.
Abibliophobia-the fear of running out of reading material
I remember going on vacations while growing up. I always was afraid I would run out of things to read. (We had a great large van. My dad built a platform for us to lay on while the suitcases were packed in underneath. We even had a fan and small refrigerator in the van for those LONG driving days he so enjoyed. With all the seat belt stuff these days, it would probably be a illegal…) Since I have gotten married, I still have enjoyed hauling more books along then was reasonable. Even though I had my kids to entertain and take care of, I still seem to have a reading expectation programmed into my brain. I would haul around a stack of books and not even get half way through. I was always afraid I would start one of the books and find out it was too slow, too profanity laden, or too full of adult scenes.
Fortunately, I lived long enough to see the Kindle. (The Nook is interchangeable, but I use the Kindle.) I just have to pack my Kindle. I have some religious, fantasy, and thrillers. I even have a couple of games. The Kindle has certainly eased my packing. And, now that airplanes don’t make me shut it off during takeoff and landing, it is even better. (Because I am eternally paranoid, I usually take at least one book should the Kindle every unexpectedly die.)
I will likely always be a little odd in this way. Even with the Kindle, I will load up on a few extra books before a trip. I know I will never get to them, but it is just seems like “old” times when I load the Kindle with a few new books before a trip. The other part about being a abibliophobic is owning a book makes it half read!
