The act of creeping up on somebody reading a book.
Rooting from Latin "liber" meaning book, and the English word, "creep"

The act usually consists of a person getting down on the ground and quietly crawling up to a stranger who is reading a book. The person being libreeped cannot notice the libreeping taking place.

There is also "photolibreeping", which is taking a picture of a stranger reading a book rather than committing the full act of libreeping.

Originating from an over-exhausted student in a college run coffee shop.
I can't see that book that random person is reading. I think I'm going to libreep a bit.

Did you see Harry yesterday? I thought he was looking for his keys on the floor, but he was actually libreeping!! What a silly dude.

Mary likes to libreep in coffee shops, but enjoys the occasional air port libreeping.

DUDEEEEE!! I JUST LIBREEPED THAT GIRL OVER THERE, AND SHE IS TOTALLY READING ABOUT MORGAN FREEMAN. OH YEH.

John likes to post pictures on Lily's wall on facebook of strangers reading books every 2 weeks. He is a true master of photolibreeping.

Yesterday, I tried libreeping a little kid as he read a children's book, but he got scared and screamed for his mommy. Mission Libreep aborted.

Oh, you're an English major? I bet you libreep.

When I accidentally libreep the Twilight series, I die a little inside.
