2017 Dictionary Challenge- Finished In The Nick Of Time

2017 Dictionary 1

2017 Dictionary 2

2017 Dictionary 3

With about 48 hours to spare, I finished my dictionary goal for 2017. Yesterday, after three years, I was able to finally complete entering all of the words from, “The New International Webster’s Comprehensive Dictionary of The English Language” A-Na Volume. This book is the first volume of a two-volume set.

After lugging my dictionary around for three years, it looks like the pictures above. The dictionary has been my daily companion for three years, and it definitely shows. Lol.

Tomorrow, or the day after, I will post my dictionary goal for 2018. I’m looking forward to finishing up this two-volume set, and moving on to my specialty dictionaries.

Love, Speed, and Accuracy,

Elsie Villega
