Some of them have dozens of books in their houses and consider reading to be their favourite pastime. Other people prefer watching TV to reading books. Personally, I get a lot of enjoyment out of reading books. Can people live without books nowadays? Is it possible that books will be replaced by television and cinema in the nearest future? Personally, I'm fond of reading. Books educate and entertain us, bring past centuries to life and help us understand our deepest dreams and fears. To my mind, a book is one of the greatest wonders in the world.

 Words have come a long way since they were invented as a nifty tool to help us communicate. We have played with them, made up rules for them, added bits to them and taken bits off. We've gathered them into languages, adopted and defined them, then redefined them. The words we use say so much about who we are, yet most of them slip from our mouths without a second thought. The Book of Words is a brief pause for reflection in the ever-changing life of words, a snapshot of the English language and how we use it today. It includes a look at long words, short words, old words, new words, brilliant words, and, of course, annoying words. From the historical to the grammatical, the biographical to the sociological, this is an A-Z of words about words for word lovers, from "aardvark" to "zythum" and beyond. This book also includes the profiles of the men and women whose creativity with words has enriched the world for ever more: Shakespeare, Samuel Johnson, Lewis Carroll, as well as the odd unfortunate whose struggles with words have given us untold mirth: Mrs. Malaprop, Rev. Spooner, and George W. Bush.

I am a teacher, and I was hoping to get some interesting etymology to share with my English III students. This book is pretty dumbed down. It wasn't nearly as interesting as I thought it would be.

Except as meals.
And the way they feels.

“The Book of Words” compiled by Tim Glynne-Jones is a collection of short articles on words, their origin and subsequent uses. The index is of some 157 articles from Aardvark to Zythum. There are only 191 pages.

I am sure that you will find the article(s) that will make the book worth the purchase. I found the phonetic alphabet which I always kept posted near the phone for the hard of hearing. Then there is a quickie conversion from English to American; just enough words to get a taste but not for practical use. The list goes on. Lots of pictures.
