My name is Danielle and I am a Canadian freelance writer living in Hong Kong. I am a self-professed dweeb with a dash of geek who has a BA in English and Awesomeness. I have an obsession with running, cats, pole dancing, reading, writing, and listening to angry music.
“Pluviophile” is derived from the word “pluvial” which means “of or relating to rain” or “characterized by abundant rain”. Adding “phile” to the end of a word is an indication of love and adoration and is derived from the Greek word “philos” which literally means ‘loving’. For example, I am also a bibliophile, which literally translations from Greek as “biblion ‘book’ + philos ‘loving’.” So a pluviophile is someone who loves rain. I find rain extremely calming and love the feel and the sound of it, I also personally believe it endorses the best environment for reading!
