The middle of October, the 16th to be exact, celebrates words and a special book: Dictionary Day and Jane Eyre Day. Dictionary Day is in honor of Noah Webster, born on October 16th, 1758. It took him 27 years to complete writing his dictionary’s first version! About a hundred years later, on October 16th in 1847, Charlotte Brontë published her novel, Jane Eyre. Currer Bell, was her pen name. Two centuries on, we "publish" in IL with our IL pseudonyms. If you find any words in IL that you think deserve their own book, do bring the post to this thread. Nominations for Finest Post are welcome from all members. Happy October, folks. Hope yours is filled with words and books, some old, some new. . .
