book monster [/bʊk ˈmɒnstə/]
someone who has a voracious appetite for books and is best known for being a serial reader, often consuming multiple books at a time
I think I can safely say that I (along with almost everyone who's part of the book blogging community) am and have always been a book monster.
I read my first book when I was around 3; it was a dictionary. I graduated to Famous Fives in first grade, at the same time when we were having hour long 'reading periods' at school, during which we were given Ladybird Read It Yourself books. Try imagining reading a 10 page book in under 5 minutes and simply staring at the teacher for the next 55 (or until someone else finished a book and you could trade, which would take ages). It was so so bad.
