Here on Beyond the Books, we often like to discuss our favorite books and reading habits, but what about the words that make up the sentences, paragraphs, and chapters of the books that we hold so dear. Do you have a specific word that’s your ultimate favorite? Tell us in the comments below!
As always, here’s what a select sampling of Livingston Librarians have to say:
Jessica, Adult Services: I always liked the word melancholy ever since my second grade teacher taught my class what it meant. It’s a beautiful way to say sad in a way that doesn’t feel so sorrowful.
Katie, Head of Adult Services: Chortle!
Gina, Youth Services: Serendipity. I think of it as defining happy little accidents.
