Biggest Book Terms!

Hey Everyone!!
I thought I would do a fun topic today! 

When I started getting into the book world – blogs and booktube channels there were so many different things that I didn’t know. Most of these terms you have to just come across and figure them out for yourself. I thought it would be nice to make a post for you all just in case there is a term or two that you don’t know and wish you did!
Epic Reads is a great company/website that can tell you anything and everything about most books that are coming out or have come out recently. They also have quizzes, blog topics and so much more. So once your done reading some of these cool terms head over to there site and have fun!

Here’s your entry to the book world:
§  Asdfjkl; - This combination of letters can be used when someone needs to express extreme emotions
§  ARC- (advanced readers copy) This is an uncorrected version of a book often mailed to reviewers before it comes out for an honest review of it. You can also call it a galley or proof)
§  Binge read – This is the act of reading large amounts of text in a short time.
§  Book hoarder – This is someone who acquires and stores mass amount of books! [ I guess I have to admit it…I am a full fledged book hoarder! Guess its good to get it off my chest]
§  Book Shelfie – This is when you take a picture of yourself in front of your bookcase. Aka-bookstagram
§  Book Sniffing – This is when people breathe the scent of a book.
§  Dog ear – This is the worst thing you can do to a book! Lol Actually it is the folding of the page of a book in the corner of the page as a bookmark
§  Book Hangover – This is the inability to start a new book because you are still living in the last books world
§  Instalove – This is a literary device that allows characters to quickly fall in love without actually getting to know each other first
§  TBR – “To Be Read” – This is the pile of books you are planning to read, wither it be that month or year or whatever.

Of course there are so many other things that can be on this list but here are the ones that are used the most in the book world!

If you have any you would like to add or think there’s another meaning to one of them please let me know! I love learning more things about this wonderful world!
Hope you guys are enjoying reading!!
