I Love You, Beth Cooper. But I'm Tired of You Making Me Look Up Words...

I took two books with me to Chicago: Lincoln on Leadership: Executive Strategies for Tough Times and I Love You, Beth Cooper. I picked up the latter based upon Alice's recommendation.

So far, after only 8 hours, I'm halfway through. It reads like a teen comedy movie. (Actually, after being on the shelf for only a short time, the movie rights have already been picked up.) It's a great book and it's super funny, but I keep running into a problem. You see, so far in the 106 pages I've read, I've had to look up 11 words. I love expanding my vocabulary!

Here's a quick list of the words I've learned from Larry Doyle...

Esoteric
Supercilious
Anthropological
Penumbra
Lubriciously
Sebaceous
Phobophic
Gait
Mien
Insouciance
Defenestrating
