If you’ve attended one of my seminars on publishing, then you’ve undoubtedly heard me yap about the three essential books every writer and aspiring author should have in their libraries.

My recommendation is to acquire one of the foundational dictionaries published by Oxford University Press.  Follow that up with any specialized dictionaries you might need, but remember to make liberal use of the unabridged Oxford English Dictionary (20 volumes, 21,728 pages, not counting supplement updates) that is available at the nearest library.

My dictionary of choice is the Concise Oxford English Dictionary
