Due July 13th, 2015 - Sometimes a love or passion for something is so great we create new words to describe it. Many folks feel that passionately about reading. Over at Epic Reads, they've put together a whole glossary full of fun terms that convey an obsession with reading.

For this contest Project Ed has teamed up with the Epic Reads crew to turn five book-nerd terms into short and fun videos that de-mystify the love of reading!

Choose one of the following five words. Take a close look at the definition in the brief to craft a story that conveys the word’s definition. Then, make a video, 30 seconds or less, that effectively and creatively teaches the meaning of the word you chose.

Your video must:
  1. Last no longer than 30 seconds
  2. Define only one word or phrase, using the definitions provided
  3. Display, at appropriate points, the word or phrase, its part of speech and definition, and an example sentence

The five words you can choose from in this challenge are:
  1. Binge-read - (v) i) the act of reading large amounts of text in a short amount of time. ii) the reason you haven't eaten, bathed, slept or absorbed sunlight in 24 hours following the release of the conclusion to your favorite series.
  2. Bookshelfie - (n) i) a picture taken of oneself in front of one's bookshelf. ii) a tool for showing others that you have more books than they do, therefore allowing you to assert your bookish dominance.
  3. Book Hoarder - (n) i) one who acquires and stores mass volumes of books. ii) one who equates books with children and therefore could never entertain the idea of getting rid of a book.
  4. Book Hangover - (n) i) the inability to start a new book because you are still living in the last book's world. ii) the inability to function at work/school because you were up all night binge-reading.
  5. Dog Ear - (v) i) the folding of the page of a book in a triangular fashion to keep one's place. (n) ii) a sacrilegious violation and affront to the book and Book Nerd community at large; shame on you.
