    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. :grinning:

    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.

    Rihana,
    You had started the finest post nominations for October thread with a great jotting. My all time favorite novel is Jane Eyre and I had read it many times.
    My first nomination for this month goes to @Gauri03's precious post in How To Get Our Life Put Together?

    Thank you @Mistt! I think a short course in CBT should be mandatory for everyone, especially in today’s world where along with day to day struggles we are being overwhelmed by existential anxieties.

    Thank you @SuiDhaaga for mentioning my name in this thread with exquisite comment about saree of inestimable value.

    This saree refuse to leave the eyes as people and the musical instruments - thamboor, violin & Veena....are woven into the phallu. This saree would be more awesome if one imagines herself clad in it.

    Dear Rihana,
    It’s my favorite month of the year! Navarathri(my favorite festival), Halloween for the kids and sometimes Diwali all happen in October. I love any excuse to celebrate and October is the start of multitudes of celebrations for me.
    Writing about celebrations, I saw some women centric celebratory posts happening on linked in. The #thislittlegirlisme campaign has drawn many responses some from very close friends, whose struggles I had no idea about. Women before us have braved adversities and challenges and come out on the other end and we continue to see such people online and in real life. I love the example they set and always derive inspiration from such women.

    @BhumiBabe’s story has always awed me. She continues to take charge of her life, carve out her own niche, find her own support and life live on her own terms. I would like to nominate her post Husband Drinking Problem And Threatening Divorce After Arguments for finestpost.

    As she has rightly stated, hope doesn’t cease and life turns out to be quite beautiful!

    I am saddened to know that her parents still haven’t reconciled with her but I’m so proud of everything else she has achieved in the last couple of years. Most importantly she seems to have made peace with her past and is forging forward. She has greatly inspired me and hope others can gain some perspective from her story as well!

    Dear Rihana,
    One of the many things I love about IL are the posters who post from their own experiences. I think I could give all the gyaan being the impartial observer and be very practical. It takes the advice to another level when someone who has been there, explains how they worked things out. When things come to parents, I have found out that dealing with them is somehow harder because of the emotions involved. If you look at @beautifullife30’s post - Preparing For A Move, she clearly states how she deals with filtering out the valid points, addressing them and disregarding others. I wish I could garner such finesse when it comes to talking with Amma.

    Sometimes, for our moms, we are still their child who should follow everything they say, especially since they say so little to us. It’s hard to convince ourselves that we have choices that we need to give importance to and convey it to our parents without getting into emotional back and forth.
    This post is well put and addresses all of the OP’s concerns. I would like to nominate beautifullife30 for FP.

    @Rihana,

    I am here to nominate @Thaygarajan Sir's stunning description of how he retrieved his Jeep's wheel struck in a deep ditch with the help of a Colonel.

    An Uphill Task

    Generally, I enjoy reading his vivid description in all of his thread but this one is exceptional making me journey to that specific terrain that too in a torential rain. I enjoyed his description of walking down the hill, meeting the Colonel, introduction of his personality, his instruction to get the struck wheel out of the deep ditch, etc. thoroughly.

    I hope he writes more and more such threads bringing a gentle breeze to IL.
