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
Now that I’ve graduated from college, I have some time to do something that I truly enjoy, which is reading. I know you’re probably thinking, didn’t you read in college? Yes, but this reading is something I WANT to do, not something that I HAVE to do 🙂
So the book I’ve just started is called Dark Money The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right by Jane Mayer. I’m not even into the second chapter and there are quite a few words that I’ve never read before and I’ve had to look them up in my dictionary to find out what they mean. So I’m happy that I will have quite a plethora of words for my Wednesday Word of the Week. Here is the first of many:
Vitriol – any several sulfates of metals, as of copper (blue vitriol) or iron (green vitriol); sulfuric acid; caustic remarks
Based on what I was reading, caustic remarks fits the bill for this definition. I am looking forward to reading this book (it was recommended by a girlfriend of mine) and learning A LOT of new words with this book as well as adding these new words to my growing vocabulary.
These are pictures of my favorite book when I was growing up. As you can see, it has no cover. I’m surprised it’s in this good of shape after all these years without a cover. This is the one book I will never, ever get rid of. I’m not even going to hand it down to my kids.
