I have tried several times to read dictionaries just to find new words for fresh uses. Mr.
Shea does a great jof of picking out unique words. Other crossword puzzle dictionaries

as most of the answers are one word. Anyone who enjoys reading and finding new
uses for building his or her vocabulary will enjoy this book.
