Reading is vital to my well being. Most of the time it doesn't matter what I'm reading, I've been known to read product packaging if there's nothing else to read. I've not had time to do much reading since I started college so this semester I've been reading a lot of books because my school work load is not very heavy.

I can think of very few books I've begun that I didn't finish. There's just something about finding out what happens at the end. A book has to be really, really bad for me to put it away without finishing. I mean really, really bad.

My current bathroom book is one that is going to be joining that elite club of unfinished books.

I consider myself to have a good vocabulary. I don't use it much because people look at you funny if you use uncommon words and I've even had people comment on words that I've used. Nevertheless, I do have a good vocabulary. This author, however, uses a multitude of words I've never heard of. Normally, I'd just look them up or figure out an approximate meaning from the context but in this book, there are just too many and context doesn't always help. It's so annoying that I'm probably going to put the book away even though the story line is not too bad.

The good thing is that there are 2 more books just waiting to take its place and the library is full of books I've yet to read. :)

Personally I don't think you should worry what people think when you use an unheard word. Instead look at it as an opportunity to teach them a new word. Yes there are times when you need to be discerning when using those words, but you are smart enough to know when that time arrises.
