Are You Into Bookshelf Porn?

These days, the word porn has morphed into a blanket term meaning raw, unfiltered stuff and/or things. For example, people refer to “food porn” when they’re perusing beautiful, extremely focused and well-lit pictures of delicious-looking food. The usage pops up all the time, but this may be a personal favorite: It's called Bookshelf Porn, and ‘tis dope. Maybe you’re not into bookshelves. In which case I pity the fool.

(Thanks, Swiss Miss.)
