Harder than expected...

I've just started studying for the GREs, and I've decided that I need some leisure reading that will challenge my vocabulary a bit. Most of the exercises in my prep book are boring as anything, so I need something more interesting to augment my studying. Any suggestions? I need an author that describes the damsel in distress as pulchritudinous instead of beautiful, describes the 3rd child as the antepenultimate, and isn't afraid of a latin word here and there.

I'm also having trouble keeping up my studying, my movie watching, my working out, and this new promise of more pictures. But... I'll keep trying.

The book I'm currently reading, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, by Michael Chabon, contains some words I don't know, but I would not say it's an overabundance of words not known to me. I do like a book that at least makes me think as I read, even if not just to figure out what the words themselves mean. It's funny, I can think of books that were hard to get through (although rewarding), but I don't recall if that was because of 5-cent words or not.
