Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme I found over at BermudaOnion’s blog. This meme shares new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love. Feel free to get creative!
Last week I shared a fun word about making piles of stuff. This week I found a word that describes my book buying or borrowing obsession.
Definition: Not sensible about practical matters. Can also refer to being overly romantic or chivalrous.
I found this word on the Vocabulary.com blog. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary this word was first seen in 1718 and is based on literary figure Don Quixote and has been used to describe unrealistic idealists since then.
