Biblioklept

Originally, I just swiped your tag @marykvalle and @JeffSharlet– Bloomberg Bibliocide– but only because it’s so lovely. Thank you for it. Bibliocide. But it could be meaning the degradation of the book’s narrative when re-cast as a film. It could also sound like we’re calling for his death by books. Maybe biblioklept instead? I’ll change it here, but know please, in my heart that I love you and your tags.
