Booking Through Thursday - Vocabulary

I’ve always wondered what other people do when they come across a word/phrase that they’ve never heard before. I mean, do they jot it down on paper so they can look it up later, or do they stop reading to look it up on the dictionary/google it or do they just continue reading and forget about the word?
I probably shouldn't admit this...but honestly...I just continue reading and forget about it. haha! I figure I can understand the story without having to understand that exact word. I also think the strongest factor in not doing anything about it is because I'm too lazy to look it up. lol!

Haha You aren't alone in your continuing to read without giving it another thought. For me it depends on whether it impedes my progress. If I can't figure out what a word means in the context it is used, curiosity gets the better of me and I look it up if I can. I love learning new words even if I forget them by the next day.
