Million Word Crossword Dictionary by Stanley Newman, Daniel Stark (Paperback)

Thank you for this book. It was a gift for my mom.

The paper was of lighter weight but relatively thick pages. My 80 year old mom can at least lift it because of this.

The references were easy to figure out for me who has never used this type of book before.

Mom likes it....which is REALLY saying something!!!!
Trust me... She would have said she didn't like it if she didn't.

Many words but gaps, good presentations

I was surprised that some clues were not answered, given how many words were in this huge volume. In several cases I did not find an answer here but did findit in the ABC crossword dictionary. I did like the way the answers were organized.

    DO NOT BUY FOR YOUR NOOK

    I wish I had read all of the reviews, as the reviews on the first page highly recommended this book. It is so slow that my Nook goes to sleep before it finds the word I typed into "search". Try to advance pages is even worse. This was a total waste of money. Can I return this book?

    IMPOSSIBLE!

    Trying to find words is so frustrating because there is no search function. You spend all of your time trying to estimate where the word might be found.

    No Stars - Do not get in Nook Format

    This is a book, not an app. Do not buy unless you want to flip thru over 6,000 pages looking up a word. The built in search feature does not work properly. This is a waste of money.

    Slow and not a good search

    Using this book in paaper form might be good but not on a nook. Too hard to search for a word and the results are sometimes questionsble.
