Another in the series.

This one was interesting more to see things I hadn't quite pieced together as being problematic. I only had three things that stood out to me and now I've got them down. But I loved the time spent wandering through it. Looking at where words came from and some of the quotes of people using the words, or misusing the words previously.

Part of the series.

Also, possibly the most hilarious one. This led to moments of my roommate and I tossing word pronunciations around at each other, and talking about the differences of words pronounced in different regions. And trying out a few words either or both of us didn't know.

Another in the series (as I purchase six of the eight with my Amazon birthday money, so there'll be a few more I'm going to pop up). Not as many new ones to learn in this one, but definitely a good book for people looking to expand their vocabulary.
