Did you know this Sunday, October 16, is Dictionary Day? Dictionary Day honors Noah Webster, considered by many to be the Father of the American Dictionary. Born on October 16, 1758, Webster began to write his dictionary at the age of 43, and after 27 years, the dictionary was complete! In addition to traditional English vocabulary, it contains uniquely American words.
Aren’t dictionaries helpful? Such a wonderful resource, right? In honor of Dictionary Day, HPB has developed a brand-new term for customers’ ultimate resource, whether they’re seeking a new author, a new genre to get into, or a certain hard-to-find book: The HPB Bibliomaniac.
