Abibliophobia
Fear of running out of reading material.


Bibliobibuli
Someone who reads too much

So, apparently, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” by Mark Twain was not just the first book ever written using a typewritter. It also has a very old video game! The game is really old, so as long as you find a digital copy and an emulator, these games can all be played on your PC (legality of your actions is fully on you!)
