Memorial Day and Monday Memes

Today’s question:
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?

My answer:
It depends on the edition I am reading.  If I am reading from my Kindle and/or Sony, then yes, I will look up the definition right away.  If it is a print copy, I may look it up at a later time.  What I try to do is read the sentence/paragraph and try to figure out the meaning from the context.   Sometimes there isn’t the opportunity of having a dictionary at hand, for example if I am reading at a doctor’s office or waiting in the car waiting for my husband to “run in, I’ll only be a second” at one of his favorite stops like Home Depot/Lowe’s because I know that his second gives me at least 30 min of reading time.

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.

According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

  1. I agree with your answer completely.
    Section 132 looks of interest to me too. Yes, Cmash, Lethal Rider came to me unexpectedly also. I wasn’t sure what to make of that and am glad to know it wasn’t just me having forgotten I requested it somewhere. (I did check my emails to see if I had requested or entered a contest for it.)
    Thanks for linking and visiting and your kind comments on MM.
    Happy reading!

  2. The books look interesting! Love your blog, so happy to be part of the Musing Mondays so I can find lovely new blogs to add to my blog trolling list!

    I am a word-hound so I have to say I already do this for word of the day challenges which I have done since I was in middle school. BUT love my Kindle. MOST of the time I can figure it out contextually, but I look it up and add it to the list… and… well HERE IS MY MM
