Since it was originally published over eighty years ago, the "Oxford English Dictionary" has captivated logophiles around the world with its (both literal and metaphorical)
weight. Very few people undertake the daunting task of reading the entire work, but Ammon Shea did just that. In "Reading the OED," Shea chronicles his year spent immersed in the immensity of the OED. In twenty-six chapters marked by a documentarian's keen eye, Shea shares the most amazing, obscure, bizarre, and memorable words he discovered during his journey in a witty, accessible style. Perfect for anyone with a hunger for learning or a love of the written word, "Reading the OED" is a must-own.
