My almost 2yo is obsessed with books lol. As soon as he's fed and changes. The first thing he does is go to the bookshelf. Sometimes to make a mess but often to choose a book and pretend to read it or get me to read it

He does look at toys but not as much.

Anyone else had or have a child like this

This is great! Encourage it, make a weekly trip to the library and avoid screens as much as possible to cultivate this love!

I was thinking to go to the library more often yes. I might start tomorrow

It is not uncommon for 2YR olds to be interested in books, and having books read to them, it all sounds great - it should be encouraged (libraries are full of toddlers in the weekends). As long as it's not the only thing that they 'play with' then it would be perfectly normal I would think.

DS is 2 and a half. He loves books, and the shelf I just moved into his room was a huge joy for him. But he also plays with many other things. I didn't see it as a problem at all, just that he was like his book obsessed dad!
