Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
I had never thought about listening to the dictionary for fun. This is rather like that but with SAT type words. So many wonderful words, not sure they all stuck. I may have to listen a few more times!
I love words, total word nerd here!! This is fabulous fun with unique words that you do not encounter on a regular basis.
You are given the definition for each word and then they are used in example sentences or situations. These were rather fun in their own rights. It was definitely a great way to keep the reader engaged in something that is not typically entertaining.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Jack Chekjian, who was terrific. It is quite a challenging reading a list of words and definitions, while keeping it interesting. He has nice tone that keeps you engaged throughout. I do not recommend one sitting for the listen, but rather doing sections at a time. He has a very pleasing voice and adds energy to the potentially dry material.
I really enjoyed this and might pick up he print version of this just to highlight a few of my favorite words. I can also imagine using this as my own word a day challenge.
