Booking Through Thursday

Suggested by Nithin:
I’ve always wondered what other people do when they come across a word/phrase that they’ve never heard before. I mean, do they jot it down on paper so they can look it up later, or do they stop reading to look it up on the dictionary/google it or do they just continue reading and forget about the word?

Most of the time I google it if my computer is handy. I've learned so many new things this way. I remember reading The Eiger Sanction years ago and having to keep a dictionary nearby.

Of course, sometimes I'm too lazy or the book is so good that I just don't want to stop reading.

I like to learn new words too but I do find it hard to remember them - growing old no room for new things:)

I only look up for technical words. Otherwise, no!

Here is my BTT post!
