Love of words

I liked the word bibliophile when I discovered it. There was a 'bubbling' sound to it which made reading sound amusing and slightly eccentric. When I lived in Paris, I was able to transfer my affection to bibliothèque - eccentricity with a french accent. And now a story in the BBC's 'From Our Own Correspondent' section - bibliomulas. A cheering start to the day.
