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.

....Wow, honestly I don't think that's happened to me in a while. I've been reading a lot of YA novels lately and it seems like the words being used are getting smaller and smaller haha.

  1. I agree, quite a few of the books I've been reading have 'small' words :)

    1. I think a lot of people are taking the whole 'small words' or 'simple words' thing a little too far lately haha :) Thanks for the follow!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my FF post earlier.

    I agree, there really aren't that many 'big words' in contemporary literature - which is good in some ways, and a little sad in others. I know that reading has expanded my vocabulary, I would like the same to be true for my children.

    I am following back via Linky and GFC.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  14. Too bad YA novels are dumbed-down, hey? On the other hand, I suppose they're that way to sell to YA. ^^;

  15. LOL you are so right about the "small words" thing. I think that books are getting more and more plot based instead of focusing on the writing!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! New follower :) Nice layout by the way!
