(Note: The edition I read was the original: New World Dictionary of the American Language, Second College Edition (Deluxe Color Edition), copyright 1980. This one is probably very close, but since it is not the same, I cannot be sure.)This is probably going to sound crazy, but I read this book, this dictionary, cover-to-cover one summer. As I read, I took notes and kept references to words that would call other words as a definition, along with possible contradictions and confusing or strange definitions.

What I found was rather startling to me, and when I was done, words and their supposed meanings both crumbled and expanded under the continuous months of exposure. It is without mention that when I was done, my vocabulary was incredible.I must admit, at the time I was engaged in this activity I was inspired by many things, some of which include Alex Haleys Malcolm X, an extreme level of boredom, sexual inactivity, and a startling lack of direction and focus. I do not recommend reading ANY dictionary cover to cover, and this one is no exception.

Still, I did have fun with it- how is that for perverted bibliophilia!
