Word of the day: avocation

I’m currently reading the novel  “Alone In Berlin” by Hans Fallada. This was written in German and first published in 1947, but I’m reading an English translation of 2009.

At one point, the word ‘avocation’ is used which I had to look up. It means: something a person does in addition to a principal occupation, especiallly for pleasure.
