The most popular abbreviations as seen by book nerds

How would popular abbreviations look like if they were to be decided by book lovers?

Abbreviations are a symbol of digital revolution. They let save time and space because you write down three or four characters instead of a dozen.

Unfortunately, among hundreds of abbreviations, you can hardly find anything that would be of use for a book lover.

Why not changing it?

If you were to give a meaning to TGIF (which arouses so many associations with the weekend devoted to books), what would you come up with?

A couple of abbreviations decoded by book geeks are listed below. As you see, many popular ones are still missing. TGIF, LOL, DIY, WTF, IMO…

How would you decode them to satisfy the book lover in you?
