I love Shelf Awareness. Ok, I'll admit it, sometimes I let them pile up for a day or few in my inbox, but I always enjoy them when I read (ahem. skim. ahem) them, looking for that little tidbit that'll pop out at me and make my week. I found this beauty a few weeks ago and it's been a delightful little online toy ever since.
It's free to become a member, so of course I joined right away and began adopting words as fast as my fingers could click. Want to know the first word they suggested I save?
Lambition, v. art of licking or lapping
Here's the word I chose to adopt (after I adopted that first one, of course):
Antipelargy, n. reciprocal or mutual kindness; love and care of children
That's much better. I love it when my angel and devil sides can have fun together. (Don't worry, the devil side is staying far away from children.)
What words have you adopted lately?
