THERE’S A WORD FOR THIS?! The etymology of the word is hard to pin down, but most claim it to be a made up of its Latin parts: Liber, meaning book, and cubiculum, meaning bedroom. It was first used, it is thought, in 1921 by Christopher Morley in his book, Haunted Bookshop. It also appears to have been an answer to a question in the 1981 genius edition of Trivial Pursuit.
