Thanks for the new words, Caity!
Recently I received a book called "Rare Words" and the sequel "Rare Words II". They're pretty fascinating reads, and I think you'd enjoy them. Maybe I'll bring them to Church sometime so you can take a look at them. :)

Persevero,
Scribe

That would be great Corey, I'd really like to see them! I'm always on the look out for more vocabulary and sources to find great words.
