There’s a Word for That: Librocubicultarist

atkins-bookshelf-wordsDo like reading in bed? Congrats, then you are a librocubicultarist, a person who reads in bed. Although the word is not officially accepted in the print or online edition of the Oxford English Dictionaries, it is found in one of their blogs, OxfordWords, that tracks neologisms. The editors currently classify librocubicultarist as a slang word.

The word is derived from the Latin words liber (meaning “book”) and cubiculum (meaning “sleeping chamber”).
