I enjoy reading and I am always pleasantly surprised when I learn new words from my reading. The most recent book I have read taught me three new vocabulary words, one of which, according to the definitions I found, was misused in the context.
ambit: the scope or extent of something
croggled: dazed or surprised, unexpectedly lacking (so is to croggle to be unexpectedly lacking?)
gaumy: disordered, messy, slovenly and/or klutzy or awkward
