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.

Wow. Tough question today. I think that the biggest word that I've seen was "absconded." 

abscondedpast participle, past tense of ab·scond (Verb)

Verb:
  1. Leave hurriedly and secretly, typically to avoid detection or arrest.
  2. (of someone on bail) Fail to surrender oneself for custody at the appointed time.
I've read a lot lately, but I think the book I found this in was Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan. How about you?

  3. True, it's so difficult to recall words and books these days, purely because of the number of books I've managed to read for a change.

    1. If I could become any animal at will I'd choose to be a lion...because I could be up, close and personal with a cat without getting a sneezing fit, and they're beautiful.

  4. Thanks for visiting! I'm a new RSS follower. Absconded and Ensconced might have the same root? They are kind of opposites, yes? Interesting word....

  11. I can't remember my last big word that gave me trouble. Usually I can figure out the meaning by context or by reading the surrounding sentences. Otherwise I do pull out a dictionary!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  12. I've see absconded several times in books, but never bothered to look it up. I also just checked the meaning of 'Ensconced'. LOL. This one I hadn't heard before.

  17. Absconded is a good one. I recently read Unspoken but I have like a short term memory so I don't remember the word, but I'm sure it was in there because it totally fits the story. Thanks for stopping by! I'm a new follower. :)

    Have a great weekend!
