    I don't see how this question is "Off topic"... duplicate perhaps, but it's a clear single-word-request. – Dancrumb Jul 9 '17 at 20:20

Bookworm

Is the word you're looking for.

Bookworm is good, but may have some subtle negative connotations.

Bibliophile might be a better choice, but, as Vector points out in the comments, this is really someone who loves books (like a collector) and is not necessarily someone who loves to read them.

    The possible negative connotation of bookworm did occur to me, yes. But bibliophile refers to someone who loves books - a collector for example - not necessarily reading. biblio is from the Greek and means "book". – Vector Jul 9 '17 at 20:34
