Booking Through Thursday

Writing guides, grammar books, punctuation how-tos . . . do you read them? Not read them? How many writing books, grammar books, dictionaries–if any–do you have in your library?

Um ... I think there's a dictionary/thesaurus around here somewhere _ a small one. But, no, I don't read them. Haven't for quite some years. We have hefty Oxford dictionaries at work, for reference. Otherwise, I think my existence is largely dictionary-free. :)

I don't use my paper dictionary much these days either, but my computer one gets a lot of use. I love great big old dictionaries - always fun to learn funny out-of-date words and then use them hehe.

I'm like Jennifer and use the computer for a dictionary.

I never think of using an online dictionary. At work we have hardback Oxfords everywhere for reference. At home, I never think of it!

I rarely use our actual dictionaries anymore, it's so much easier usually to look something up online. :)
