Mini-challenge this hour: Care has posted a challenge asking for unusual vocabulary words in the books we’ve read, and/or most interesting/annoying/favorite run-on sentence encountered.
Here I go:
I have neither been greatly annoyed by nor been endeared to (of course!) a run-on sentence thus far. Therefore, I’ll post the best word I’ve come across, although it’s not new to me: perspicacity. It was in Alexander McCall Smith’s The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.
Books completed since I started: 3: Stardust by Neil Gaiman and The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Comments about this hour:
I’m afraid my reading is going much slower than I thought. Either that or I was somehow optimistic about this read-a-thon. I am staying awake.
Before I picked up the first on the Mitford series, I took a gander at The Book Thief, but I was worried that, not only was it long, it was … too sad? Down? Too something for the middle of the night.
