The E-Sylum:  Volume 3, Number 30, July 23, 2000, Article 13

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: BIBLIOMANIAC 

   NBS Board member Bill Murray writes: "I picked this out of 
   the local paper.  "A bibliomaniac is one to whom books are 
   like bottles of whiskey to the inebriate, to whom anything that 
   is between covers has an intoxicating savor." 
       -- Sir Hugh Walpole 

   The paper credited the quotation to: "The Delights of 
   Reading, Quotes, Notes and Anecdotes, "Merrian Webster's 
   Encyclopedia of Literature."   I never heard of the Encyclopedia, 
   but it sounds like it might be fun, doesn't it?"
