I still need my dictionary and thesaurus beside be as I'm at my computer writing a hub. I don't use online dictionaries, an installed app/program, or spell checker. What do you use?

Absolutely LOVE your answer! Thanks for taking the time to share and break down the importance and usefulness of an oldschool method, MJennifer. Happy hoarding!
Thank you, Janshares! I appreciate that I'm not alone in the joy of hard-copy dictionaries! The best part of them is that you can browse them and stumble across new words, which seems unlikely (if not impossible) with online editions. Thanks again!
True, with all the new words and updates over the years. Thanks for answering, chef-de-jour.
LOL, so funny, Alphadogg16. I'm feeling a little older about now. :-)
Thanks for answering, Gail Meyers.
Yes, lambservant, having enough work space is important. Thanks for answering.
Wow, Dee aka Nonna. It didn't even occur to me that kids wouldn't know how to use them. Thanks for answering.
I'm with you, conneauwriter@ya. I don't think I'll ever switch over. I'm usually just checking for basics, not any new words. Thanks for answering.
Great, to hear I'm not alone. Real books are fading fast. Thanks for answering.
Mine are very old but still in good condition. Thanks for answering.
Cool, never seen one of those. Thanks for answering, penlady.
Yes, I like that it's still there, too. Thanks for answering.
