Dictionary On a Desert Island

I can actually sit with a dictionary and be happy!    I believe it would be one of the things I would take to that proverbial desert island - I would have every story ever written - I would just need to figure out where the words went!  I also love the thesaurus.  Looking at different ways to say the same thing.  Some words are just pretty to say, like Tranquility, Whisper, Serendipity.   Where would we be without words?   It would be very quiet!

I know what you mean. I love browsing randomly through reference type books. I think that's why I enjoy the internet so much. It's like a magic carpet ready to "whoosh" us to the land of serendipity.

I love words for sounds such as whoosh, swish, grr, etc..!
