* While it's only touched on every once in awhile, part of the BackStory for Chuck of PushingDaisies is how she accumulated a huge amount of books (and knowledge) due to her never being able to leave home. In the flashback sequences we see a room which has what looks like ''thousands'' of books all stacked on top of each other.

* Rory Gilmore and Jess Mariano in ''GilmoreGirls''. Their initial friendship and eventual relationship is sparked off with a mutual love of literature, thanks to Jess secretly stealing her copy of Ginsburg's "Howl" and then returning it to her with his thoughts in the margins.

* 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.
