Feature and Follow # 7

Photobucket

Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and Allison Can Read




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.

 A:  I have to say its in a book I am reading now,  I in my lifetime never heard of this word.

Vouchsafed-
1. to give or grant or condescend to give or grant (she vouchsafed no reply he vouchsafed me no encouragement ).
2. (may take a clause as object or an infinitive) to agree, promise, or permit, often graciously or condescendingly he vouchsafed to come yesterday
3. Obsolete a. to warrant as being safe b. to bestow as a favour (upon) [


Things going on this next week, Our Halloween Spooktacular begins on Oct 1st and runs til Oct 31st. Stop by for some fun and lots of giveaways. I am having a special giveaway as well to show my appreciation to all my followers a Rafflecopter giveaway

I was already a follower. Thanks for the giveaway! I'd love to win and choose The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa.
For the FF Blog Hop - The word I had to look up was from David Mitchell's novel Cloud Atlas. Check it out here

Jessica@a GREAT read said...

Yeah that one I might of have to look up! But sometimes I can infer the meaning of the word by the context its used in so a dictionary isn't always necessary.

Here's my Follow Friday

I have heard this one before but I don't think I ever looked it up, either skipping over it or using context. It is kind of obsolete though, like the definition says (thank goodness)!
