My mother couldn't believe someone would write such a word in permanent black marker on the books s Not really sure if this counts as a reading book but I must say I referenced it many times in the 90's before computers got really popular. I just remember my brother taking it from someone's locker in high school and giving it to my mother. Why I still don't know but there was a big swear word on the spine of this paperback.

Reviews about Webster's New World Large Print Dictionary (7):
I purchased this large dictionary for homeschooling my 6th grader. Just so you know, the book is heavy. Its not too heavy, as in lifting weights at the gym (sarcasm), but heavy enough that it would be cumbersome to pick up if you have arthritis. Therefore, if you dislike lifting heavy books, don't buy this dictionary. If, on the other hand, you don't mind a little heaviness, then you may like this book. The print is so incredibly easy to read, which is why I purchased it. The font is nice and large, and the print is perfectly dark black, the way I like it. It's user-friendly for kids, and makes words easy to find. My 6th grader was easily able to navigate through this dictionary without difficulty and locate words quickly. Yes, I would recommend this dictionary.
Nice dictionary for desk use which is what it is intended for, The pages look clean and sturdy and not like the cheaper frail paper that is used in most pocket books. I do however don't like some of the organization of some of the content itself. There could have been much better way to organize abbreviations on a list for the letters or maybe towards the begging. Also the word pronunciations seem inaccurate for some and the other conjugations for the word could have been included in a less messier and unorganized way.
The print is of a readable size for seniors and others of diminishing eyesight. One of the problems for publishing in larger type face is that it reduces the number of entries that will fit in a manageable size volume (9"x11"x 21/2"). Thus, this dictionary which is excellent in every other regard, has about the same number of entries as a much smaller dictionary of standard size type. This leads to a contradiction: most people as they age and favor large-print books also tend to have larger vocabularies. Hence they only need a dictionary for less frequently used words. I discovered the disconnect when reading a novel by Edith Wharton. If you remember her, she was a brilliant writer, but tended to a flowing, elegant and perhaps pedantic style. The first words for which I turned to Webster's New World Large Print Dictionary for a definition were from Miss Wharton's writing. Alas, the words were not to be found. Yes, today we tend to use more basic English. That is not the fault of the large print dictionary, but it is a loss for fans of elegant English. The OED (Oxford English Dictionary) requires many volumes. Just imagine how big it would be in large print!
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT -- you know your getting old when you can't read the dictionary you used in university but this one is great. Very easy to find what your looking for and if you need more in-depth info you can go into the computer (which I'm not too good at) and research more. Would recommend to anyone who's vision is failing.
I did not do my homework on this purchase. This dictionary contains 60,000 entries, which sounds like a lot, but any serious reader will require at least twice that. However, for general use by light readers with poor eyesight it is a good purchase.
The large font is a pleasure and the book is well made. It does not have alphabetic page tabs.
I LOVE this Dictionary! The "LARGE PRINT," actually is large print. The only improvement I would make is to have tabs where the letters divide. Purchased this for my second grader and he LOVES using it to look for obscure words. Expensive for me, but in my opinion, every home with children and adults alike needs a good Dictionary and Thesaurus. Great purchase.
Very nice book. But we noticed upon looking up a few words that they were not included in the dictionary. Am guessing that maybe because this book is in large print that they left out some words so the book would be at a more usable size and thickness.
bought as gift for my dad who is 85 and refuses to get new glasses. He loves it. no longer uses magnifying glass to read dictionary.
