I mean, yes, it's a dictionary. So I'm not really reading it, though I can't say I've read it. But everyone should have one, right? They really are fun to peruse every now and then. And this is the one I recommend.
Well, technically, I haven't read this whole book, but it certainly does come in handy during Scrabble games. Since we like to learn new words, we bend the rules a bit and allow look-ups, provided that we share the definition.
I always keep this one next to the computer when I'm working on a writing project, along with the thesaurus - an authoritative reference that has helped me avoid some mistakes that would have been embarrassing.
Sadly, I've read this book cover to cover. I skipped twelve pages in "K", though. It was, um, fun? Er... *tried desperately to think of a review*... Nice Work? Way to... dictate? You got 5 stars.
An unabridged dictionary is a must in every household. I got this book for my HS graduation and I think it's awesome.
i have yet to find another book with my two favorite words: callipygian and defenestrate.
