Definition: One who loves paper (Merriam-Webster Online)

Sample usage: "Yes, I have magazines, circulars, charitable solicitations and handbills that somehow ended up piled to the ceiling in every room, but I'm not a hoarder. I'm a papyrophile."

Popularity: Feel free to use this word if people give you trouble for subscribing to the physical edition of this periodical instead of reading it online. Old-fashioned? Hardly. You're a papyrophile, and we thank you for it.
