It’s funny that I don’t mind admitting that I’m LOVING this bit of glorious nerd Heaven… I downloaded the app on/for my Kindle – It’s great! And, I visited the actual dot com… even more fun there!
The app has a Word of the Day, [Today is: CEDE] (I post them on Tumblr), and really interesting ‘slideshow’… thingys. This one is great – a New Year theme… ‘Nine Words About Beginnings‘ – maybe I’m just feeling squishy because it’s New Year’s and my birthday, so I get all inspired… Want to LEARN!
But, I’ve checked the app every day since I’ve gotten it!
I’m keeping track of every word I look up this year, too. (Started early because of a couple great ones!)
#FunFact – The app and the app (I use both – faithfully), are linked/sponsored with/by a Rewards program, (MPoints) I’m earning points toward Amazon, already earned two $1.00 gift cards. Husband is using his Weather Channel points toward Home Depot, or maybe he switched it to Timmy Ho’s … loves his coffee 🙂 (Holy Chit, there’s a game I used to play all the time on there, too! More points for me! – Yay!)
Ive added most links into this, if you ever wanna check anything out.
Iow, I’m chatty tonight! Sorry ’bout that!
