5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant gift for crossword / Scrabble fans!
This is one of my fave gifts, and I wouldn't mind receiving it, either... The 'New Words' calendar makes a perfect gift for anyone who writes for a living, or who just enjoys word games, crosswords and such. It's a desktop or wall-mounted calendar, of the tear-off type with a page per day. Like others of its type the 'New Words' calendar isn't the sort you'd use for...

2.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a present
Bought as a present for someone who loves words and gets a thrill out of coming across new ones. Unfortunately she has not found many that she did not already know. Would not recommend it for anyone with an existing good vocabulary.

This is one of my fave gifts, and I wouldn't mind receiving it, either... The 'New Words' calendar makes a perfect gift for anyone who writes for a living, or who just enjoys word games, crosswords and such. It's a desktop or wall-mounted calendar, of the tear-off type with a page per day. Like others of its type the 'New Words' calendar isn't the sort you'd use for long-term planning or managing your workload during a week. It's not a planner or activity diary -- instead it gives a new motto, message or quotation for each day of the week.
I really like these forms of calendars because they tend to make us stop and think for a couple of moments -- normally early in the day, over the first cup of coffee! This one is especially entertaining, providing an educational extension to vocabulary together with details about pronunciation and correct useage. It's fun and useful; and you can share the fun by sending appropriate words/days to your friends as the year progresses.
The only downside is that because it's an international calendar, it doesn't contain info about UK holidays and dates. There are also no glossy illustrations or pretty pictures; these calendars focus on the text.
Still, I reckon this is the ideal gift for any Scrabble fanatic. And a lot of educational fun for everyone else.
9/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stocking filler that you'll use all year, 26 Sept. 2012
This review is from: 365 New Words-A-Year 2012 Calendar (Page a Day Calendar) (Calendar)
Great little stocking filler and something you can use all year long. Easy to rip off the pages every day and has a joint page for the weekend, but still has a word for each day. Some of the words are a bit complex and some more interesting, fun words may be a bit more amusing and easy to digest as you reveal the word each morning which is why only a 4 star.

Looking at a new word each day wakes me up each morning! Although some of the words are a little "Amercianised" I find learning the roots of words fascinating. Product arrived well packed and on time.

a good Christmas wrap up which my daughter thought was very funny after her boss sarcastically told her that maybe she should extend her vocabulary as he uses some quite old

This review is from: 365 New Words-A-Year 2012 Calendar (Page a Day Calendar) (Calendar)
No matter how large your vocabulary, this calendar always gives you words you didn't know, but would like to use, in a light easy-to-use, attractive format.
