Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we wil answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact.
This week’s question – Q: What is the BIGGEST word you've seen used in a book lately - that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition & book too.

Ok this might sound really weird, but I don't often notice if a book has 'big' words in it.  My kids are always saying that I use big words all the time and it has turned into a bit of a competition at mealtimes to see who can use the biggest words, so I don't really notice them when I read them.  In fact I cannot recall any at all in recent books, though I'm sure there must have been some.  Sorry to disappoint you guys.  I'm sure Christinabean has some for you though.

This question is a toughie but to be honest, nothing comes to mind.  Yes, I sometimes look up words in books but recently, I haven't been doing that. I've had some fantastic reads lately and most of them have been fast-paced.  When you're reading something so good, who has time to go "Oh, wait a minute!  I need to look that up".  Not me!!
