Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme from Bermudaonion, where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading. If you want to play along, grab the button, and join the fun! (Don’t forget to leave a link in the comments if you’re participating.)
I just love this meme so much, I have to join in. For some reason this reminds me of my mom and how she would make me look up new words that I stumbled upon as I read.
