Reading the OED: One Man, One Year, 21,730 Pages - Ammon Shea I wanted to like this book. I love language and dictionaries. But somehow I lost interest about 1/2 way through. I forced myself to go a little farther, but then I just found myself picking up other books instead. So I'm rating it "it was ok." It's humorous and if you like language, you'll probably enjoy at least some of it. It certainly isn't a book I'd want to read straight through though. More of a book you can dip into now and then.
