Bookworm’s WordBook #1

Bookworm’s WordBook #1

“Vocabularies are crossing circles and loops. We are defined by the lines we choose to cross or to be confined by.” – A.S. Byatt

If you’re a bookworm, book enthusiast or a booknerd (however you want to call it), big complicated words are like potholes on the road while you’re driving or shark encounters while you’re diving. The point is you’ll get these words thrown at your face a lot while you’re reading. Not that it’s a bad thing, in fact it’s good, hence why we’re calling this post the Bookworm’s Wordbook. Every once in a while, we’ll cover a list of interesting words which we find worth mentioning for your reference, entertainment or even for you to kill some time. Oh did we mention that you’ll get to find ebooks that have these words in it? Enjoy!
