I have been purchasing this desk calendar for years. Used to try to find it at local bookstores and now only get it from Amazon. I am a lover of words and have learned many new words via the calendar.

Today's (29 November 2012) portmanteau word: MUZZY

Old pages are put in the recycle bin and are also useful for notes when I can't find something to write on when at the computer desk. I also often share the word of the day with friends, via email or Twitter.

If you love words and want to learn new words, this is the perfect calendar. Also a fun and inexpensive gift for your friends. A new word of the day is something I look forward to when sitting down at the computer (with my cup of coffee) each morning.

Good, but too many unusual words that are rarely used in normal conversation. Next year, let's back it down to more practical words, ok?

I purchased this calendar as a gift for a friend whose first language is not English thinking it would help him with his vocabulary, but the words are too abstract for this purpose.

This is a fun calendar to get someone who loves words! I've given it to my husband for Christmas every year and he loves it. Plus it's easy to jot down daily reminders.

Some of these aren't words, on top of that some of them aren't even added to the current dictionary. So imagine using a fancy word on a resume or school paper and the employer/teacher decides to look it up. Not good. So I trashed it, not even finishing the year.

It has useful information but I was expecting more on the HUMOR side, with a work and a very short comment on the word.
