Tsundoku – Say What Now?

I saw this great article about the Japanese word “tsundoku” meaning “reading pile”. All avid readers likely have the same problem I do where I buy far more books than I can read and so they pile up – unread – around my apartment. Tsundoku excellently describes this and I am going to start using it.

What other non-English words perfectly describe readers or reading phenomenon?
