Vocabulary Day- Feb 2013

vocabulary day

There have been fewer new words this month. I haven't read a book set in any exotic location, and that helps. Take some guesses, or show me up, whichever! These are words that are either brand new to me or rediscovered (my personal rule is that if I can't define it, I have to look it up).

I'm currently reading Bridge of Sighs which I think might endure to become the best book of 2013.

You missed the free story if you didn't get on the email list at Mail Chimp, but who knows what I'll give away next, so you might want to join.

well give that fish a tissue to cover his fichu. Maybe he could hook up with Chorine the local prostitute

The only one I knew was chlorine. I'm sorry there will be no humorous interpretation of these words this month. I'm just not up to it yet.
