These days I’m suffering from a serious condition known as lackolibraphobia. Yes, it is a word. Okay, it is a made up word. Nancy Pearl announced this official term for “the fear of having nothing good to read” at the Public Library Association Conference this past March. This is a very real condition which may lead to fidgeting, sweating, irritability, a sense of hopelessness, and increased consumption of reality television. Fortunately, there are treatments.
