Not bibliophile, or really anything "biblio-" due to the fact that that way a love of books, which can mean a collector or someone who loves the publications themselves, yet not necessarily your content. Also, not words like bookworm, since they refer to the human who loves reading, whereas I"d like a word that explains the action or state of loving to read.

You are watching: What do you call someone who reads a lot

There is the word bookish:

fond the reading; studious

and bookishness because that the fondness that reading:

the high quality or condition of being bookish

The word has actually other connotations also but i think this word is the closest solitary word girlfriend can gain for this meaning.

As I stated in the comments, lectiophilia would be a perfect neologism for the love of analysis if us follow the route of bibliophilia (and together words suffixed through -philia). Lectio way reading in Latin. In the end, it can constantly be offered as a nonce word.

How about the native "bookaholic"? it is an informal word defined as:

A habitual and prolific reader; a compulsive publication buyer.

The Latin for "I read" is lego, therefore I indicate legophilia (yes, why not incorporate Latin and also Greek?)
