Yet Another Dictionary
You might think that having two dictionaries in my study, one in my dining room, and one in my car would be enough. You would be wrong. I needed one for my backpack! Or, rather, one that I could keep in my office and take to sections that I'm teaching. So I went out and bought the smallest edition of the American Heritage Dictionary I could find. Surprisingly, it only set me back $6. Now I'll be prepared tomorrow when my students ask what "peculation" means. It's embezzlement.
