Is There A Correct Term For A Book Nympho?

Honestly, it's a craving - every book I see becomes something I WANT NOW!  I'm reminded of one time at my cousin's home, when her little boy was about two years old (and a chubby thing, too).  He waddled over to the fruit bowl, took a plum in one hand and a peach in the other, and was staring alternately at his hands and at the bowl, wondering how he could manage to grab another piece of fruit.

 That's how I am with books.  Right now, I'm reading Soldier's Pay by William Faulkner, 1848: Year of Revolution by Mike Rapport (history), The Wishing Box  by Dashka Slater, a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, and I just finished re-reading Beowulf.

Wait - almost forgot - I'm still in the middle of a biography of William Gladstone.  Might not finish that one.  What a horrible person (and boring)! And I don't want to lose track of that Stephanie Plum mystery- I think it's the fourth one.  And I'm beta-reading a friend's novel (can't give you the title of that one, sorry).

If I hit the lottery tomorrow & could just read all day,  I'd  have enough books lined up to last me a year.
