I Read the Dictionary For Fun

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 128 People

    Fascinating

    The dictionary is one of my favorite reads- I like to take it with me into waiting rooms, etc, so I can learn a few new things while I wait. Yes. I am a nerd.

    Laying In Bed Last Night,

    the past several nights actually, I've found myself completely enthralled with my dictionary. I've been working on Carl Sagan's book, Science as a Candle in the Dark, and ever so often I come across a word I have no earthly idea what it means. My dictionary always rests next to...

    Yes!

    Heehee...boy I am so glad to know I'm not the only one! I did love to read the dictionary when bored. It certainly helped when I read books with advanced vocabulary. Words are powerful because their meanings are powerful.

    Did This Quite Often In High School...

    I used to love going through the dictionary & picking out words that I liked. I would pick words that looked &/or sounded interesting, sexy, or that just rolled off the tongue. I even went as far as to keep a notebook of those words & their meanings! I'm sure I still have it...

    Started When I Was 9

    I remember being in 3rd grade vividly. It was a great year for me--- the year I discovered the joy of reading the dictionary. I would sit on our back porch in the afternoons, after riding horses, and read. Mom would have to practically drag me away to eat dinner. Some nights, I...

    Probably A Confession ...

    Admitting to reading the dictionary for fun is probably more of a confession than a story ... lol ... but I'm afraid I have been known to do this quite often.  I have been caught skimming through a thesaurus too ... but that's another confession/story ... haha

    Great Entertainment!

    I'm fascinated with etymology, so reading dictionaries is a natural for me.  I don't remember when I started - sometime before 5th grade, I'm sure.  I mean, how many other books are there where you can guarantee that any page you flip to will be interesting?  Not...

    I Love Words.

    I can't get enough of them. So when I'm bored, I whip out my dictionary. It's the latest edition from oxford. I love being able to pop out a fancy word in a conversation. The dictionary is my best friend. :D

    Word Power

    I just love words, i used to be a bit crossword fan but i got bored of them. I did Eng Lit. at university and love to write for myself so it's useful to have a wide range of words from which to choose. I'm always interested in the origin of words and phrases too.
