Follow Friday: What's Your Vocab Kryptonite?

 

This week for Follow Friday the question raised by Miss Parajunkee is.......


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.

 

This is going to sound so dumb, but I can't remember the last time I looked something up!  If its a contemporary book, I never need to look words up.  Gosh that sounds so uppity *cringe*  The reason is when I was young.....I was so weird....I used to straight up read the dictionary, I seriously started reading it in 2nd grade and read it several times a year until high school.  It used to be my bathroom reading of choice. I know that is a bit of an over share but....too bad.  We aren't squeamish about such things over here on The Book Buff.  Anyway, I do like to read a lot of Historical Fiction, so I do have to look up some random stuff here and there.  How about you?  What word was your most recent vocab Kryptonite?

 

Happy Friday and happy hopping!

I kind of burnt myself out on historical fiction a few years ago and I'm sure my friends were happy about it. I can't count how many times I would find myself using kind of "dated" language when I couldn't think of a better word. It was rather amusing. I know I do look up words now and then on my Nook, it's just so easy to do that I don't really remember which words I looked up. Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

It's true, I have a Kindle and it is so easy to just look them up and forget about it. Thanks for stopping by you guys!

I had a hard time with this question too! Luckily I came across a word right away in The Casual Vacancy. It was vetiver.

BTW I love the pictures you have of famous book buffs! :D
