My 2013 hard cover edition of Webster's dictionary & thesaurus just arrived. Oh my goodness! It contains 67,000 "clear concise dictionary definitions" and more than 140,000 synonyms and antonyms. Talk about words, words, words!
I am aware that some of my facebook friends who are writers believe that ordering books from Amazon helps to put local bookstores out of business. Although I do agree with that thought, I live in a small western NM town that does not currently have a book store. I was in need of a new dictionary and had no choice but to order it online. I had donated my old books to an aspiring writer that I am trying to encourage, who resides in a nursing home. I didn't realize I missed the books until I no longer had them.
Although I am thrilled with my new purchase and expect it to inspire me to find synonyms and antonyms I hadn't previously thought of, 67,000 words at my disposal is just a bit overwhelming.
