A person with a fondness for words. They read anything and everything; cereal boxes, billboards, bumper stickers, etc. Word games are their passion; Scrabble, Boggle, crossword puzzles, and word search. Logophiles enjoy learning new words and you won't catch one without a dictionary in their home library which they all have because after all books are packed full of words, glorious words.

That would be me and all three of my kids. I've been known to read an entire cereal box during breakfast even the uninteresting parts. I read every sign I pass regardless if I know what it says by heart.

My husband is a budget analyst; a numbers guy and doesn't understand us. We have to beg him to play Scrabble or Boggle with us and he's miserable through the entire game. He would much rather play a card game or something that requires chance and counting. They say opposites attract and that was definately true in our case.

One of my favorite books is the dictionary. A great online dictionary is called the free dictionary. Their website is: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/

They have a Quotation of the Day, In the News, This Day in History, Article of the Day, Today's Birthday, Match Up Game, Hangman, Daily Horoscope and your local Five Day Forecast.

I like the hangman game. It's fun and I've learned several new words by playing it. ;0)
