B is for Bibliophobia #atozchallenge

There was a farmer who was petrified of books
Throughout school, he was let off the hook
He opened not one in sixty years
And reduced his bookish wife to tears
When he traded her secret library for chooks

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Bibliophobia is the fear of books.

    I can’t imagine ever having that phobia. WAY too much of a bibliophile myself…
    Fun theme 🙂

    A fear of books! I suffer from the exact opposite condition – abibliophobia (fear of running out of things to read) 😛

    What? Fear of books. Ok maybe text books but not surely of all books 🙂 And his poor wife! How could he trade her secret library?

    1. Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

      April 2, 2015 at 11:50 pm

      Well, I was thinking divorce but I guess kill is an option too for such blasphemous behaviour! 😀
