The Merriam-Webster Dictionary

I chose this dictionary to use on my computer desk. It is so convenient to look up words, spelling, etc. It doesn't take up a lot of room, and is sufficient for my needs. I recommend this dictionary for any age. It is excellent for content in a small book.

    Fine Little Dictionary! I've been using this dictionary for yea

    Fine Little Dictionary!
    I've been using this dictionary for years. It's light weight, easy to read and inexpensive. After it wears out, I replace it. The shelf life is usually about 10 years before the pages get crumbly and produce an odor. I bought three, this time; one for my bedroom. one for my living room where I do most of my reading, and one for my car where I read during lunch hour at work. I also keep one at my desk at work - that one, purchased in 2008, is still in good shape. This dictionary is good when writing, to verify the spelling of words I may not use everyday. This was especially good for me when proof reading was part of my job. Nothing beats a dictionary. Computer spell checks have their place, but they don't always know what the writer means and will suggest an incorrect change.
