T is for Tegestology

Today I have a fun little vocabulary word for you.  In fact, it was so fun, I wrote a Choose Your Own Adventure Story for it on my other blog.  You can find it HERE if you're interested.

Today's word is: TEGESTOLOGY

Tegestology is the collecting of cardboard beer coasters.  A tegestologist is the person who does the collecting.

Reasons to know this word:
-It's oddly reassuring that odd little hobbies like this have names of their own.
-Now that you know the word, you may be inspired to take up tegestology.  If you do, it could make for some interesting conversation at the next social gathering you attend.  Then again, I'm weird. Keep that in mind.


  1. Thanks for adding a new word to my vocabulary! I did read that 'weird' sorry - clicked every connected link in fact. Howlarious :)

  3. That's very interesting. I saw something equally interesting a few months ago about a guy who collects pizza boxes! He has hundreds and maybe thousands of different pizza boxes. I didn't realize there were so many variances in pizza box designs! Who knew?! Beer coasters are very cool. Do you collect them?

  4. What a strange word! I guess there is a word for everything...and a hobby for every collector!
