When I am reading a book, or anything else for that matter, and I come across a word that i don’t know, I will look it up!
I have Dictionary.com on my phone which makes this very easy. Sometimes for a second definition I will look towards my Oxford English Dictionary. You will be surprised how often they differ in their content.
I have been reading all sorts of books for the last ten years. From golf autobiographies, to self help. Spiritual novels, to Esoteric master pieces that have changed the course of my life.
In this time I have gained much knowledge, and hundreds of new and interesting words.
The word section in this case should explain itself. I will be posting at least one, possible two words a day.
