I’m reading a fabulous book by Lincoln Child called Full Wolf Moon. He’s one of my favorite authors, check it out.
Anyway, one of the words I came across is:
Chitinous – a nitrogen-containing polysaccharide, related chemically to cellulose, that forms a semitransparent horny substance and is a principal constituent of the exoskeleton, or outer covering, of insects, crustaceans, and arachnids.
So I realize that today isn’t Wednesday but I wasn’t home Wednesday and didn’t have anything queued up so here is your word of the week…for last week, haha 🙂
I’m still reading the book Dark Money by Jane Mayer and came across another word that I had to look up in the dictionary – yes I still use one of those. So the word of the week is:
Apostasy – the abandonment or renunciation of a religious or political belief
