Kindle Vocabulary Builder (Week 2)

Onto another week of the Kindle Vocabulary Builder! Check out my first week here.

If you have a Kindle, then you probably know about the cool vocabulary builder feature it has! Anytime you look up a word’s definition, it’s automatically added to the vocabulary builder, that way you can review, study, and master the words at a later date.

All definitions have been taken from Merriam-Webster. Hopefully you learn a new word!

  1. I tend to (unknowingly) skip over words I don’t quite understand/know, especially if the sentence makes sense for me either way – a really bad habit, especially since english isn’t my first language. I should probably take the opportunity to learn more new words!
