“Put your ear down to close to your soul and listen hard.”  – Anne Sexton

“I don’t need a man to validate my existence.  The most profound relationship we’ll ever have is the one with ourselves.”  – Shirley MacLaine

“In th end, it’s not what you do for your children but what you’ve taught them to do for themselves.”  – Ann Landers

“If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?” – Lily Tomlin

Quote lover and compiler Carolyn Warner gives readers much to think about within the pages of The Words of Extraordinary Women.  I have always loved quotes, and I enjoy using them in everyday conversation.  These quotes are funny, sobering, saddening, and wise.  From Politics to Education to Family, the words of women through the years have helped direct children and adults alike, changed policies, and changed lives.  Pick up this book today to discover the words of many different women through the ages.  You’ll find that we do know what we’re talking about!  Happy Reading!

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a word meme hosted by Bermuda Onion, and it celebrates fun, wondrous, and sometimes surprising words for you to use in your daily vocabulary.  The words you see when you follow this meme will be new to the person posting the word, and you will often find unique and unusual  sounding words.  Get ready to start using these words and impress your friends and coworkers, leaving them befuddled as to what you’re talking about.

I often love words that are fun to say – words that make your tongue roll or your lips tingle when you try to pronounce them.  Here are my two words for the week:

Tatterdemalion: (n) A shabbily dressed person.  I won’t roll down my car window for a tatterdemalion.

bibliobibuli – (n) those who read too much.  Friends of book bloggers will often describe us as bibliobibuli.
Here’s to Wondrous Words Wednesday!  For my new readers, I plan on posting a meme a week.  This week is unusual, as I am returning to book review blogging and have no new material to post.  I did receive six books in the mail today (yes, you heard that right – six) so I will be doing a good bit of reading over the holidays and posting new material shortly!  Stay tuned!!!

The books on this blog have been sent to me directly by either the publisher or the author. I paid nothing for these books. I received them free of charge in exchange for my honest review. I received the books only - no monetary compensation was given or received by either me nor the author or publisher. The copies I review are considered review copies or Advance Reader Copies. I will note in each post if I received a copy of the book for free from either the publisher or the author. If no such notation is made, then I purchased the book myself, was given a copy of the book by someone I know, or I checked out a copy from my local library.
