Wonderous Words Wednesday

This weekly meme brought to you by Bermuda Onion.
Here are my words for the week:
From Pickwick Papers:
1. assiduity- marked by careful unremiting attention or presistent application
2. somniferous- inducing sleep; soporific
From Beowulf on the Beach:
1. garrulous- given to prosy, rambling, or tedious loquacity; pointlessly or annoyingly talkative
2.cellarage- a fee charged for storage in a cellar
3. fitchew- the old world polecat of its fur
4. somnambular- to walk or perform another act while asleep or in a sleeplike condition
5.threnody- a poem or song of mourning or lamentation
6.penultimate- the next to last
7. proscenium- 1. the area of a modern theater that is located between the curtain and the orchestra. 2. The stage of an ancient theater, located between the background and the orchestra.
Since I am still reading these books look forward to more from them next week and others.
What words did you find.

I've heard penultimate before but never actually knew it's meaning. You sure do read some heavy stuff! Thanks for playing along!

Thank you all for the comments. Yes, the works do seem heavy at times. I rarely read YA unless its an arc or a readathon I read mostly classics and historical fiction
