Follow Friday - Vocabulary Words

Happy Friday everyone. First of all, let's thank Parajunkee and Alison for hosting the fun this week. The question is:


Q: What is the BIGGEST word you've seen used in a book lately - that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition & book too.

Unfortunately, I can't remember any words that I've looked up lately. Usually, I'll just try to use the context to figure out what it means. But, the point I really want to make is every time I don't know a word in a printed book, I WISH I was reading it on my Kindle! That's truly one of my favorite features of my Kindle. Love the dictionary. It's so easy, and you don't lose the flow of the book.

Secondly, I LOVE when a book uses words I don't know! I consider myself to have an extensive vocabulary, so if a YA book uses words I'm unfamiliar with, I love it.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend. Please let me know where you've posted your answers, so I can improve my vocabulary!

  3. Yay modern technology! If I'm not reading a book on the Kindle, then I usually have my phone and my trusty Dictionary.com app ready to roll.

  5. I felt much the same. I wonder if it's a teacher/librarian thing?

  10. I agree with all of your comments. Context is always first for me and then I'll look something up if I can't figure it out. I love the Kindle dictionary. Also, I haven't tried it yet, but Bluefire Reader updated with a way to look up words too.
