For Bermuda Onion's Wondrous Words Wednesday; a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading throughout the previous week.
I have two more this week, both taken from the pages of "The Book of the Dead" by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child:
"The pharaoh was buried at sunset, and his soul accompanied the Sun God on his solar barque as he made the perilous journey through the underworld toward his glorious rebirth at dawn" (pg 62)
"And for the first time in months, the interminable, dry, mocking voice in his head fell to a susurrus, almost inaudible amid the sound of the bow plowing the sea. (pg 541)
that's all for me this week, folks... What about YOURS??
