Wondrous Words Wednesday

Just a couple of new words to share with you this week ..

1. – I have just awarded a very rare 5 star rating for this amazing book. I can’t even begin to express how much I was moved by the storyline and the excellent way the characters were developed

KARSTS

Casey standing at the tiller of a long boat on an expansive Asian waterway, her large, green eyes taking in the sheer limestone karsts which jutted vertically from the emerald water on all sides of her.

KARSTS – landscape underlain by limestone which has been eroded by dissolution, producing ridges, towers, fissures, sinkholes and other characteristic landforms.

2. – These two words I came across whilst catching the tail end of a programme on UK television a couple of nights ago. The programme was ‘What Britain Buys’, a series where retail guru Mary Portas, explores the shopping habits of the Great British public

MANSCAPING – The removal or trimming of hair on a man’s body for cosmetic purposes.

SPORNOSEXUAL – A social media and selfie-obsessed male who takes cues on his appearance from sport and porn

3. – Each morning, a strong black coffee goes down a treat if I have my dose of daily jigzone to keep me company. Each standard online jigsaw, is generally expected to complete in under 10 minutes and for those of you who are competitive, it’s against the clock 🙂

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
