Then why not kill a few cycles and improve your word power at the same time!
I used to love Readers Digest when I was a kid. There was usually a Disease of the Week story, some Uncanny Tale or other and of course It Pays to Enrich Your Word Power. For a word nerd it was sheer bliss.
Now there’s Free Rice, a website that not only tests your brain but donates rice on your behalf as well.
It is most efficacious. Ha.
PS, my high score is level 45… not that I’m bragging of course. The site includes some strange words at quite high level – I think it’s written with US language usage in mind, rather than English or Kiwi.
