A fun and extremely well indexed book compiled by a father-daughter team. Some of the more interesting words include:

otiant: idle; resting; unemployed
docity: ability to learn quickly
boreal: northern
lusory: playful; used in play

So if words such as these tickle your fancy, there are 496 more to be found in this slender volume. (And no, they aren't all six letter, these just happened to fit this format.) Good fun either to read or leaf through in the bath.
