Wednesday Word Skills
These words are from the book "Let the Great World Spin" by Colum McCann. I have an advanced reader copy of the book and have only read the first few chapters. I'm sure I'll have more words from this book next week.
Anorak = a pullover hooded jacket long enough to cover the hips
Bodega = a small grocery store in an urban area specializing in Hispanic groceries
Complines = the seventh and last of the canonical hours
I am enjoying this book, but I've been really busy so I haven't had a lot of time to read. I plan to catch up this weekend (I hope!).
