    Bookish

    Dear Teachers

    I want to find an adjective to describe a person who loves reading and loves litereature. I found the word 'bookish', but it is a disapproving one (below, definition, Cambridge Dictionary). Is there an 'approving' adjective I can use?

    Please advise.

    Definition

    describes someone who enjoys reading books, especially serious books
