The Accidental Dictionary by Paul Anthony Jones

I am so excited for the release of this book! Any self-professed wordsmith or etymology nerd should be, too. Paul Anthony Jones looks at 100 words in the English language that have surprising or silly origins (think “tiddlywink”) and traces their journey from their intended use to the definitions we now know. These bite-sized lessons are sure to spice up your small talk and keep you endlessly entertained. - Kelly
