 He frowned "I wasn't down there that long. I was swimming". He said.
"No, Daemon, you were down there a long time. It was at least ten minutes! I looked for you, called for you. I....I thought you were dead!"

Q: What is the BIGGEST word you've seen used in a book lately - that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition & book too.


     I can't remember the last time I looked up a word. Even if I did see a word I didn't know in a book. Most of the time I can understand a little bit of what it means be reading the rest of the sentence, or the surrounding sentences. I will every now and again look up a word if it keeps bothering me after I put the book down, but I haven't done it in a while.
What about you???






That is my answer, come back tomorrow for a new Stacking The Shelves.
Happy reading.

  4. I wonder what special powers/abilities Daemon has that allow him to stay underwater so long? If he's the man in the cover illustration, he seems sort of detached.
    I look up new words too, but I can't tell you the last time I did that or what book was involved. I do remember looking up "ennui" recently, to make sure it meant what I thought it did before I used it in a story I was writing!
