    Hi hi, It’s another wednesday and that means we have a new word to share on #WordSearchSeries.

    WordSearchSeries #4: Taciturn

    ​Today on #WordSearchSeries, I found Taciturn. I came across this word while reading a feature on bellanaija (This is a popular wedding and lifestyle website in Nigeria).  Before I go on, here is a little confession. I have been poked a lot about not reading books but my argument is, I read a lot of books while growing up and this is probably the reason why I snub paper back books these days.
