  1. Pontia,

    Here's a fun book recommendation for you: "An Etymological Dictionary of Persian/English and other Indo-European Languages". I really like how words and languages are related - especially in ways I never thought of, and this book is full of that stuff. It's a good reference book, but I like to just browse it from time to time.

    1. I love stuff like that too. Thanks for the recommendation, PJ! I'll definitely check it out.
