Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of The Big Book of Submission: 69 Kinky Tales, uncovered the perils of compulsive book hoarding in an article for The Toast. Jacket Copy, a literary commentary column in the Los Angeles Times, wrote their own piece on excessive book buying, and revealed that the Japanese have a special word for book hoarders: "tsundoku."

Bussel admits that she owns over 2,000 books, though none of them are collector items or rare in any sense. She theorizes that her obsession with books comes from her primary identity as a reader. Says Bussel, "Reading has always been the primary way I make sense of the world around me; books are my first stop when I want to learn about a new hobby, culture, person or world."
