* Matilda from Roald Dahl's eponymous book [[ChildProdigy taught herself to read in toddlerhood and made significant progress in the Western Canon by age five or six.]] She doubles as a CuteBookworm.

* Sara Crewe of ''A Little Princess'' is said to love books. In fact, when [[spoiler: her father dies and she becomes a servant at Miss Minchin's Seminary]], she is highly concerned about continuing her education, and is thrilled to get to read whenever she can.

**Fern Walters, who is both a reader and a writer.
**Marina Datillo, Prunella's AcademicAthlete friend; the girls bonded over a mutual love of Henry Skreever, which is an Expy of ''Harry Potter.''
**Prunella herself, though since she's somewhat of a minor character, we see this less than with the main cast.

* 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.
