Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language
Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language | Thunder Bay Press, Advantage Publishers Group
3 posts | 2 to read
Reprint of The Random House Dictionary of the English Language, Unabridged, 2d ed., 1987, about which Library Journal wrote "...not a replacement for Webster's Third International... (which contains 450,000 entries)...it is a fine addition to reference collections." This work contains 300,000 entries including names, book titles, places. The front-matter has not been edited with care: refererence is made to material at the back, but some is completely absent and some appears in the front. Cutting corners in the reprinting of a great reference book deserves harsh criticism. Thunder Bay seems to have not corrupted the main text. c. Book News Inc.

1. Because I can create so much more with all those words, maps, phrases, ideas, names, etc...
2. Depends on how cold it is. I love socks when I‘m cold.
3. Leadville Co 10,152 feet. I went sledding in June (25 years ago)!
4. Hmmm....sandwich bread? (I do not eat meat, and dislike dairy too)
5. Not sure yet.

Congratulations @Moray_Reads and thanks for this opportunity to share in the #bookschangelivesgiveaway One of many books with a lifelong influence on me is Webster‘s Unabridged Dictionary. It was my all time favorite Christmas gift ever with appendices full of knowledge- including literary quotes. And so many words to learn! And maps!!! I love looking at maps!
