While this book is full of information, it is a bit of a slog to read. I don‘t think that‘s anyone‘s fault. There‘s just so much ground to cover, and it can get a bit bogged down and boring. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It is a good resource, however, for learning about the evolution (which continues to this day) of the English Language. 😊

She still doesn't really understand the concept of sitting in a lap, but I did convince her to stay for about 60 seconds as I was reading about typographical emphasis

I don‘t often enjoy textbooks, but I enjoyed this one. Lerer has a conversational tone of writing that makes the subject matter less dense and more fun to learn. I highly suggest this, even if you aren‘t an English major or an English Ed major! 😊

I just don't think this worked as an audiobook for me. There were recipes and the narrator kept referring to pdf supplements that were not available on Hoopla (I checked this out from the library.) I listened to about half of it and found myself less and less interested and fast forwarding more and more. I think I would have liked it more if it were a physical book. It strikes me more as a book you browse.

Te Araroa kilometers tramped: 572.9 of 3005.3

Books completed on trail: 9

This book is thorough! A linguistic and cultural comparison of the differences between American and British English. It made me self conscious about coming off as rude when interacting with Kiwis tho. I learned that the way Americans ask for things in restaurants can come off as rude to others. 😩 #hoopla

Thanks to @betty for the great #winterswap gift - a book and a box of postcards with bookstore pictures on the front. Just my cup of tea! 😍 👍 👌

Tsundoku - (Japanese) Leaving a book unread after buying it, typically piled up together with other unread books.

Although, I do read them eventually. 😃

The literal translation of this German word is “grief-bacon”! ❤️ it! 😂

Refers to the excess weight we gain from emotional overeating.

I will definitely be using this word in the future!
