Roots: Bibliosmia & Amore (Click on the links to find the meanings of the root words on and Urban Dictionary).

Definition: A kind of love or affection that grows in or around the presence, aroma, discussion or motif of books, such as in a bookshop, library or book reading clubs.

Example: Ever since Notting Hill and William Thacker’s travel bookshop set the ball of the modern British romance rolling, it has been the unspoken fashion to visit a bookshop or a library especially at times when you are down and out and in need of love, perhaps followed by some orange juice or cappuccino, or mushy whatnots.
