A New Phrase!

 timor defectus librorum

latin for the fear of running out of books! I experienced this often while going about my day in NYC. I'd have a magazine with me...and another magazine in case I finished the first one. Or I'd have a book...and another book in case I got to the end and wasn't home yet.

Happily, Kindle ended this unease for me, but the fear of running out of something good to read is more appealing than describing the fear of my e-reader running out of battery power.
