Dictionary Day drawing

This InkTober drawing for Day 16 is inspired by Dictionary Day (October 16).  I just learned about it and I was really excited!  I love dictionaries! I enjoy learning the meaning of words. Although I use online dictionaries nowadays, I have fond memories of looking up words in our family’s three-volume leather-bound copy of Webster’s Third New International Dictionary.

Dictionary.com tweeted this question: “What do you love about the dictionary?”  My reply: “Learning the meaning of  a word is like having the light turned on or solving a puzzle.” :)
