Wow, this is a great name for a bookstore! ABeCeD~arian is a person who is learning the ABC's. At the moment, I am considered an abecedarian, as I am taking a Spanish for Adults course and while there are lots of similarities in the alphabet, there are some differences between English and Spanish's systems. Then too there're huge differences in the pronunciation of some things, while still remaining the same in other regards.

What's very interesting is that there are many educational organizations with this in their title. They are aimed primarily at improving literacy among children, with some focused on literacy in general. Abecedarian is fun to say, as well as to write. It tickles my brain.

  1. If that really was the name of a bookstore, I'd walk right past it. Sounds too academic and boring.


Thanks for taking the time and effort to let your thoughts be known!
