Weird words part 3 – Abibliophobia

Well I had to find a word that related to one of my biggest stresses – books.

I own too many.

But I like to write and I love to read. Twists and turns, new language and slang, mysteries and scares, they all make me smile.

Romance hasn’t been my thing for some time, although I know many a fan of the ‘Mills and Boon’ era. I remember old school friends parents who had piles of them on their shelves and units (remember when we had units in the living room?!)

Lately my reading tends to be self-help or mental health related, for obvious reasons. I’ve found some short stories by people that have used their suffering for their art. It’s inspiring.

So the problem related to this ‘Weird Word’ is unlikely to apply to me, thankfully!



A fear of running out of things to read.

Making anyone who, like me, spends most of their time on the internet reading shit news, an Abibliophobe.

You’re welcome!

Hi! I'm Steph, an amateur writer and illustrator specialising in Mental Health and being a self-confessed Spoonie. My website is home to any successful fiction I create, with stories that have won so far covering difficult subjects such as baby loss and mental health in grief as well as some funny and heart-warming tales when I get the inspiration. Every drawing and picture on my website was created by me. I spend a lot of time coming up with illustrations to accompany all of my posts and pages. I try to create original content across all of my channels, whether I'm writing about my own fiction or just generally musing on mental health or my own issues. I want to be part of the change because I believe the understanding of MH in the UK is getting better, but has a very long way to go. By being honest about my own struggles and symptoms I think others will relate and hopefully it will encourage them to talk to someone and get the help and support they need. Long term my goal is to help children too, help them understand their own mental health and how to help with the mental health of those around them. I live in the UK with my partner, daughter and dog, I swear frequently and I adore a well made, traditional, gooey, chocolatey, delicious brownie.
