* Klaus in ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' loves to read. Not just to read, but to ''research'', which often comes in handy because his EncyclopaedicKnowledge, combined with Violet's ability to improvise inventions and Sunny's teeth, allows them to escape from Count Olaf's clutches.

* Lucy in ''Manga/ServantXService''. Her mother warned her about neglecting daily life in favor of books, and a conversation with Saya revealed that she pursued a 2-year college term so she can immediately find work and earn money to ''buy more books''. Personality-wise she sits somewhere between CuteBookworm and HotLibrarian; she's already a young adult (20), looks like a HotLibrarian and is hardly a ShrinkingViolet, but she is very naive, especially on sexual matters.

** Maria is this way in ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonMagicalMelody''. In her [[VideoGame/HarvestMoonOriginalSeries source game]] she was a highly religious woman who hanged around the local church. In ''Magical Melody'' there is no church so she was [[CompositeCharacter mixed]] with her granddaughter to be the local librarian. Maria absolutely loves books.
** As mentioned, Maria from ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' (better known as Mary post ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature'') is Maria's granddaughter. She is the ShrinkingViolet librarian who spends her time reading and writing books.

* Sheska from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is this to insane levels. Not only does she fit all the standard requirements for being a Bookworm, she also seems to like reading for the sake of reading. Including cookbooks. More importantly, she can even recall books perfectly, such that when she made a copy (From memory) of said cookbook for Ed, he was still able to decode the secret message in it.
* Vio, Link's "smart side" from the [[Manga/TheLegendOfZelda Legend of Zelda: Four Swords+ manga]]. Also something of a BadassBookworm because he's strong and skilled enough to beat the "original" green Link in a sparring match.

* Any ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' girl who hangs out at a library will inevitably be one of these.
** That really just limits it to Mary and Maria, given the small number of actual libraries in the series. Male examples would include Ivan from ''Grand Bazaar'', and Gray from ''Back to Nature''/''Friends of Mineral Town''/''More Friends of Mineral Town''. He partly frequents the library because his crush, Mary, works there, but he's displayed a genuine interest in reading, as well as discussing stories with her.

* OprahWinfrey was like this when she was young. She actually taught ''herself'' to read when she was two or three. (Something that is uncommon but not ''unheard'' of.)
* DavidBowie regularly travelled with at least a trunk full of books in TheSeventies and once presented a list of recommendations at his official website, taken from what he'd then-recently read/re-read. The list contained 51 titles!
