Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!

I found this meme over at BermudaOnion’s blog. I knew I wanted to do this meme after reading The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams. The protagonist has a love of words, which I share.

Wondrous Word

Definition: One who steals books.

I found this word in the online Merriam Webster Dictionary who credits use of this word to The Saturday Review on October 23,1880.

I’d love to hear your favorite words. Drop them in the comments.
