It can be said that the current affordability and widespread distribution of books today makes bibliomania all that more common.

An ex-girlfriend of mine was the daughter of two professional teachers, and both she and her father were practiced speed readers. Consequently, he made it a habit to visit the local bookstore every Tuesday to pick up the latest science fiction releases. Every single one of them. Well, he probably left out the lousy ones, but the store manager made it a point to set aside one copy of each new publication just for him. Their furnished basement had bookshelves along literally every single wall, stuffed with loosely-organized paperbacks.

Not that I consider this a bad thing, except possibly from an economic perspective. It's been said that many a person has been praised for being well-read, but never has it been considered a compliment to be well-watched.
