Annie Smith, 49, munches on up to three paperbacks a day and admitted to The Sun: "I'm addicted. If I don't eat books, I get really angry."
Since she started pecking on paperbacks over two decades ago, she's devoured over 6,000 of them - and is still tucking into them now!
The habit first kicked off when she was pregnant with second daughter Kym, who is now 24.
After craving the scent of bus tickets – a smell reminiscent of her childhood – she headed to her local library where she devoured their books.
She explained: "I used to go in and eat lots and lots of library books. They never found out. I feel terrible about it."
Now the former insurance worker buys second-hand books to fuel her addiction.
The West Yorkshire woman added: "I can't go anywhere without a pocket full of paper. The old musty books are my favourite."
Anita checked with her doctor whether her snack choice was harmful but was told it was fine. She confirmed: "So I'm not going to try and stop."
