Happy Saturday, my friends! Today, I want to show you my newest book. See that great volume sitting next to my records? That is my new (to me) Webster’s New Twentieth Century Dictionary Unabridged Second Edition. Isn’t it beautiful?!
My dad works at a few local elementary schools, and he saw the dictionary on a teacher’s shelf. He started telling her about me, and how much I love books and reading, and even about this blog. In turn, she told him how her grandfather had used this dictionary in college. It has a great history. Later that day, she flagged my dad down and said if I would really love the book then I could have it. She wanted it to belong to someone who would enjoy it. Now here it is, on display in my library. I will be writing some New Words posts today, and I intend to use my new dictionary for definitions.
If you ever read my blog, Ms. S, thank you so much for this lovely Webster’s Dictionary!
