Even more tiny things!

Although these aren’t really adorable. Especially if you like books.
I was looking at one of our older books and I saw a little hole bored into the side of a book. Guess what I was looking at? A bookworm hole!
Doing a little research, I found out that there really isn’t a specific bug called a bookworm, but different bugs that like to eat paper, such as the Death Watch Beetle and the booklouse. Pretty fascinating, isn’t it?
