* Chava of ''Fiddler on the Roof'' is said to be a BookWorm. In fact, that's how she first bonds with the guy who eventually becomes her husband. He mentions often noticing her at the bookseller's.
* It's not mentioned in any of the movie versions, but some stage plays of ''Annie'' have an orphan named Kate in the cast. She's described as a dreamy BookWorm with a great imagination.

* Music/{{Morrissey}} is a proud Bookworm and often makes reference to English literature. Deconstruced it with references to IntelligenceEqualsIsolation and LonersAreFreaks from his point of view. Of course PlayedForDrama, because [[LargeHam it's Morrissey]].

* 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. This quality of her is even more noticeable in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' thanks to her being an AscendedExtra and eventual best friend to Winry.

* The children's book ''A Sister More Like Me'' (which is based on an earlier version of the film's script), which is a tie-in for ''Disney/{{Frozen}},'' describes Elsa as a BookWorm and diligent student. This wasn't included in the film itself but was also referenced in a CutSong "More Than Just A Spare".

Added DiffLines:

* Francie in ''Literature/ATreeGrowsInBrooklyn'' has been reading one page of TheBible and Complete Works of Creator/WilliamShakespeare every night -- based on her grandma's advice to her mother before she was even born. Later, she attempts to methodically read every book in the public library so she can know everything in the world.
* Jane in ''Literature/TheMoffats'' also tries to read every book in the library. Sylvie and Joey are diehard readers too, inspiring five-year-old Rufus to apply for his very own library card in ''Rufus M''. It reads as a classic [[TheHerosJourney Hero's Journey]] (although the author probably didn't intend it this way).

* Would you believe that ''[[ComicBook/ThePunisher Frank Castle]]'' was one of these as a child? The one-shot story ''The Tyger'' depicts him as a quiet yet bright child who preferred spending his time in his fathers old library over playing outside. Immersing himself in countless books, and favoring poems in particular.

* ''LightNovel/NoGameNoLife'': This is the Flugel's hat. They don't care about gambling for territory or resources, and only puruse books. It's possible to make them drool and bet their freedom if tempted with sufficient quanities of books.

* [[Music/JoyDivision Ian Curtis]] was also an avid reader, pariticuarly of Creator/FranzKafka and J.G. Ballard. That would explain a thing or two about his lyrics...
