I always have a book with me.  Physically and always, I have a book with me.

I just learned there is a name for this: vade mecum.  vay-dee-MEE-kum  noun.

1.  a book for ready reference: manual.
2. something regularly carried about by a person.

“Vade mecum” is Latin for “go with me.”

Could there be a better phrase for the book at my side?  I think not.

I think I have a new favorite phrase in Latin.

Which means this is the first time I’ve had a favorite phrase in Latin.

This is a big day.
