Are you a fellow word lover? Growing up with a grandma who kept an Official Scrabble Dictionary in her trunk at all times, I think it’s in my blood! Still today I get a Word of the Day email and do my crosswords in pen (ok just early in the week– by Thursday I usually switch to pencil!), and editing ThinkFun’s What’s GNU? online dictionary was no small thrill
As a self-professed word nerd, I was thrilled to learn about the Free Rice initiative! If you are looking for a fun way to beef up your vocabulary… and do some good for the world while you play, check out www.freerice.com. Take a vocabulary quiz (no need to sign up/register), and for every answer you get right, FreeRice donates ten grains of rice to the World Food Programme!
Feed your brain and the planet– what could be better!?
