Fictionophile’s ‘philes’

Adding ‘phile‘ to the end of a word denotes ‘lover of

When I began this blog I was going to use Fiction-phile, but after some thought decided that Fiction-o-phile sounded cooler.  It sort of goes with Bibliophile.

Anyway, just for the fun of it, I decided to list all the kinds of ‘philes‘ that I am…  In alphabetical order (because I’m a retired library cataloger).

Of course, I love many, many, more things, but I just couldn’t find a ‘phile‘ word to convey them.  Do any of these words apply to you?

    I’m most of them, but probably not a museophile – the idea always appeals more to me than the actuality – and while I do love my English neighbours, I can’t think of a Scottish equivalent?

    Many of these words apply to me, especially autophile and those relating to books and reading. Oh, and the cat one too. 🙂 (Wish I could have a cat but hubs it too allergic. Sigh.)

    I am also a “phile” of most of the same things, probably not Anglophile or Ailurophile but all the others. Now I have to find one for lover of dogs instead.


  4. This is such a pretty post! I loved seeing all your philes it was rather beautiful.

    My, my – I share all of your ‘philes’! Although, being British, I am probably not allowed to be an Anglophile in case it comes across as being a ‘little Englander’, which I most definitely am not. A wonderful list!
