This Forum Is Dedicated To Fetishizing Books, And Frankly I’m Into It (30 Pics)

Look, I’ve never really enjoyed the Bed, Bath, & Beyond aesthetic. Honestly, the signs that say something like “Look at the time! It’s Wine O’Clock!” make me want to mix pills with whatever wine that homeowner is serving. And yet, every sign or shirt that says “go away, I’m reading” or the like instantly soothes me and makes me ask where the tea is because I’m about to sit on the couch and cuddle up with a book and a cat (I’m allergic, but still have the impulse).

Enter the Reddit forum r/BookPorn. No, Mom, it’s not porn that takes place in a library. Get your mind out of the gutter. It’s just photos of libraries themselves that make your brain cum. That’s why “porn” is in the name. Don’t quote me on that or anything else I’ve written on this site.


This forum fetishizes the bookish life and frankly, I’m here for it. I love seeing a welcoming home library with a fireplace or a fancy new-age public library that leaves people in awe as if it were a church. If you worship at the altar of the Humanities, you’ll agree this is borderline religious.

I hope these photos calm you and make you feel like settling down with a good book today.

Here are the best recent photos from the Reddit forum r/BookPorn:
