The Century Vocabulary Builder - by Garland Greever
What a great idea! Build a vocabulary for the century! OK, it is not this century.
Hmmm, it is not the last century either . .
But they had the right idea in 1883:
The Century Vocabulary Builder (No UK or DE edition)
The book is not about grammar, usage or spelling. It is not for scholars. It is for people who would like to improve their vocabulary and their ability to speak plainly. The book does not give you word lists, but does have exercises. Give it a shot in 2011! (A touch of slang, judiciously used, can be effective.)
An easy way to page through a blog is to go to the bottom of the page of a blog and click on "View Articles List." This will give you a page that lists a line or two from 4 blog entries. That is especially useful with this blog if you are looking for a blog entry on a particular book.Tweet this!
