Examples

  • 'All right,' said the bookseller amiably. 'Miss Chapman, you take the book up with you and read it in bed if you want to. Are you a librocubicularist?' Titania looked a little scandalized. 'It's all right my dear,' said Helen. 'He only means are you fond of reading in bed.'

Note

This word ultimately comes from the Latin ‘libro,’ book, plus ‘cubare,’ to lie down.
