Old books

I decided to look a little bit into bibliophilia, the love or collection of books as it seems relevant to my data which is all about my collection of books.

Bibliophilia or bibliophilism is the love of books. Accordingly a bibliophile is an individual who loves books. A bookworm (sometimes pejorative) is someone who loves books for their content, or who otherwise loves reading. The -ia-suffixed form “bibliophilia” is sometimes considered to be an incorrect usage; the older “bibliophilism” is considered more correct. The adjective form of the term is bibliophilic. 

In essence the aim of my final outcome is to contain some elements of bibliophilia, alongside categorisation, statistics and other such types of data.
