The Oxford Classical Dictionary, 4th edition

All four editions of the OCD are in my library. I'm sentimental regarding the 2nd edition, of 1970, as it was new when I was beginning grad school. That said, the 4th is a worthy successor and augments well my old companion of the Ancient World. If you're interested in the OCD then you probably don't need my recommendation. This is the third one I've purchased over the years (editions 2, 3 and 4). It's the standard that gives great, ...

Pocket Oxford American Dictionary, 2nd edition

I've been learning English for about thirty years now; so, I can confidently say I know a thing or two about dictionaries. I wish I had had this dictionary decades ago. You see, I'm the kind of person who wants to know the nitty-gritty of this very rich language; as such, I bought many bi-lingual and monolingual English dictionaries over the years and I was never completely satisfied with any single one of them until I bought this Po...

I knew I was going to love this book when it had Beast Boy from Teen Titans and the Joker/Harley Quinn team from the original Batman animated series RIGHT ON THE COVER! Of course there are classics in the book such as Tom & Jerry, Astro Boy, Space Ghost and Alvin & the Chipmunks, so it's not just for Generation Yers (Zs? Millennials? What even am I anymore?). What's more is that you get trivia about who voiced the cartoons, c...
