Wonderous Words Wednesday is hosted by The Bermuda Onion. It is a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading. Feel free to join in the fun.
Last week was my first opportunity to join in this meme, and I really enjoyed it. As I said then, I felt just a little bit smarter after I looked up the definitions to all the words that were new to me. :o) Here's this week's offering...
trade mark for a coffee substitute invented by C. W. Post and made with chicory and roasted grains
natural or habitual inclination or tendency; propensity; predisposition
taken, done, used, etc., surreptitiously or by stealth; secret
Having a harmful effect; injurious
Yep, now I'm smarter again! :o) All of those words come from a new book I just finished over the weekend called Stealing Home by Allison Pittman. If you're interested, I just happen to have a giveaway going on right now for that very book! Click on this link, and follow the instructions. Who knows, maybe you'll be the lucky winner!! :o)
