Arbor (trees). Rapist. Aborapist (are-boar-ah-pist)
noun - A person who holds an irrationally strong attraction to physical books. When these people talk about libraries, book stores or any large collection of physical books they usually get doe-eyed, dreamy or downright manic.
Their attitude usually extends to a great deal of hatred towards eBook technology (or anything that would supersede the prevalence of physical books as the predominant medium for information storage)
Sally: "Your kindle sucks, REAL books are so much better! I could wander around book stores all day, I want to LIVE in a book store... or a library. Don't you love the smell of old books?"
Johnny: "You are such an aborapist!"
