I‘m having too much fun with your giveaway, @Linsy ! Here‘s another great word - most recently read in The Power by Naomi Alderman 😍😂🤗

hermyknee @Soubhiville @PenguinInFlight @Melissa_J @readingjedi @LorieL omg I just realized I wrote “kerfluffle,” but the actual word is “kerfuffle” - I always say it with an extra L! Apparently “kerfluffle” was some weird marshmallow fluff brand... 😂😂😂 oops! 2y
Autumnlong Also 😳 truffle kerfuffle is a v excellent ben and Jerry‘s flavor. (I thought it was kerfluffle too! Haha) 2y
readingjedi @hermyknee ??? I didn't even notice! We always pronounce it "kerfaffle" - as influenced by the comedy series Little Britain 2y

Yet another BuzzFeed quiz. This one gives you a word the best describes you based on your book choices. Not really sure I agree with mine. What word describes you best?

GarthRanzz @TommieMarie74 That‘s an interesting one. 2y

tournevis @GarthRanzz The same lion, just sprawled in a sun beam 2y
YouReadMyEyes I got the same 😊 “dauntless.” I am not really a risk taker. I‘m more of an over-thinker, worrywart. 😳 it must be because I picked almost all fantasy, sci-fi or horror novels? Idk 🤔 (edited) 2y

Learned a new word today! Hovawart! A breed of German dog. The author of the book Im reading kept referring to his “Hovawart,” which I knew from context was some kind of animal, but with a name like that I was expecting something Hagrid would introduce.

Librarianaut That's really cool! My Kindle is one of the super old keyboard models. I ❤️it, but would welcome a new one just for the vocabulary feature... 3y
Smangela I love that! I'll have to start! I also love the word hirsute :) 3y
DebinHawaii I look at it sometimes. It kind of cracks me up because I highlight many food mentions especially for the books I review to decide what to pair with them so it picks lots of words like quiche, potato salad, peaches, etc. to give me the meaning! 😆 3y
Marchpane Yes! What is really cool is that it shows you the context too, ie the passage and book the word was in when you looked it up. 3y
LitLogophile Haha I had to delete the word "those" that I accidentally highlighted before posting this in order to avoid embarrassment @DebinHawaii ? 3y

jpmcwisemorgan What is this magical thing you speak of? Inquiring minds want to know.😀 3y
jpmcwisemorgan @lostlogophile Which Kindles allow this? Where do you find the words? I have so many questions I may have to ask Google. (edited) 3y
LitLogophile Hehe it's just from the books you read on kindle @jpmcwisemorgan -- once you highlight them to see the definition, they're added to the vocal builder. I'm not sure which kindles, but I have the Paperwhite and I'm sure the Fire does as well 3y
Hollie Hmm I've never tried, but now I'm gonna check it out! The problem for me would be that I accidentally click for definition 99x more on words like "the" when what I'm meaning to do is start highlight. My kindle vocab builder probably thinks I'm on a See Spot Run reading level. 3y

Well, each dictionary selects its own Word of the Year. The 2016 WotY for the Cambridge Dictionary is, "paranoid."
"Searches have risen ... over four times more than in 2015. ...it suggests perhaps a feeling that the institutions that have kept us safe can no longer be trusted, ... When we look at other words that have shown similar increases, we can build a fuller picture: anxiety, chaos, increases in prejudice, bigotry ...". #wordoftheyear

Donna_sBookMinute And I have to get this dictionary too. Never knew there was a Bibliophile's Dictionary. 3y
geodynamical When we are all traumatized and living in fear and paranoia, the terrorists in government win. They know that a negatively-charged populace will continue the trauma cycle, perpetuate racism, division, and blame, and beg for solutions. Then govt can legitimize a police state, make more laws to strip our freedoms, and mold public opinion through mainstream media. But perhaps we are reaching a rolling point. 3y
geodynamical *tipping 3y
Donna_sBookMinute @geodynamical -- I agree. And if we could only step back and not bare all of our feelings, knowledge, and plans on social media. That's how the govt strategizes today. We're telling them everything they need to know. I admit to having some moments myself. After Sandra Bland, I saw that I needed to cool off; and I haven't been as vocal. Tipping point indeed. 3y
geodynamical @Donna_sBookMinute I hear you on that. I come from a programming background and even though I'm not a wiz kid, with a little time I could use code to pull massive amounts of data from social media. There are a lot of big data programs and predictive intelligence out there that news media are using to find trending events in real time before the police. 3y
