Bermudaonion asks you to share new words that you have learned during your reading adventures in the last week. Feel free to join in the fun!
I found a new word this week while reading Made in the U.S.A. by Billie Letts, and the definition was actually included in the sentence:
Tonitrophobia-and here is how it was used on page 271:
The doctor who examined her had explained that tonitrophobia-fear of thunder-could, in extreme cases, cause seizures and, though extremely rare, could result in death.
I really enjoyed this book and I will be meeting with my book club this evening to discuss it. I can tell you right now that you can expect a positive review from me on this one!
