It's A Hop Thing!


Today's Question:

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.


 "Aztec" by Gray Jennings had me running to the dictionary and feeling like a grade school kid instead of a college student. An excellent and lengthy read featuring fun words like "promptitude"  and "adjuration" and "salacious" . But learning new words has always been one of my favorite parts or reading.

So get reading:

Carry on the hop; I always follow back, thanks for the visits.
