Where does the word blurb come from you ask?

As a noun, Merriam-Webster defines blurb as “a short publicity notice (as on a book jacket)” and as a verb, “to describe or praise in a blurb.”

Michael Quinion posted his take to his site World Wide Words. The Wikipedia entry is quite informative.

Who knew the word was 99-years old?
