Wordy Wednesday is a new meme I will have here at On The Shelf. I love to learn new words and being the avid reader I am, I am bound to come across words I don’t know, so this meme is to spread word knowledge! If you’d like to participate, just post the word and the definition and any other fun facts you may want to list as well.

Foible:(this one has two totally different meanings) 1. Small flaw or defect; minor weakness, including one of character. 2. The weaker section of a sword between the sword’s tip and middle.
This word originated from French in the mid 1600’s along with the word feeble.
