What's In A Word?
It's just as the title says What's In A Word? Fascinating stories of more than 350 everyday words and phrases. If you've ever questioned where a word came from, Webb Garrison has conveniently structured this book into chapters of different types of words. Garrison provides you with background knowledge of each of the words and a brief example.
It is in the form of a dictionary, making it easy for you to look up a word or phrase with the flip of a couple of pages. It's a great book to have on the coffee table, or beside the toilet for easy reading or a conversation starter. Garrison makes it easy to enjoy, with adding in a few witty comments, keeping it a fun read.
Pick it up and start learning about where words and phrases such as wedlock, floppies and in the groove originated from.

I'm making the best of life.
Photography is a passion of mine, I can't take enough pictures. The beach is where I belong. Camping is a hidden favorite of mine, as well as curling up with a good book. The New York Yankees dominate my life from April until (fingers crossed) November. Oh and married to a NYPD Sergeant.
