Here is a short trivia on book collectors and lover of books:
Bibliophilia is the love of books. Accordingly a bibliophile loves books, but especially “for qualities of format.” A bookworm loves books for their content, or otherwise loves reading in general. The practice of loving or collecting books is dubbed bibliophilism, and the adjective form of the term is bibliophilic. Also, a Bibliophile refers to a person who collects books.
