I wonder if how many students do research on the internet just to find a meaning of a word. Or do they use it to play games on Facebook or other games. I though the internet can make the person smarter. Or don’t bother to use it. Do they know the internet have a dictionary, electronic encyclopedia and especially blogs, they can really help. No need to go to a library in the middle of an argument just to prove you are right. Your source of information is right here. But make sure the site is updated, check the edition and the year.
If you made up a word and you think it sounds good in a sentence, but do you know the meaning of the word before you use it? If you don’t know the word and you think this could be the meaning of the word, you could be the first human dictionary. You are smart. But what if, you are wrong. You need a second opinion. The dictionary, there’s the book and one on the internet. Is the dictionary the most popular book and online? It could be, but the bible is the number one. I think they should make the Dictionary in the Top 10 of the most popular books to read. You can gain knowledge from it.
Anyway here’s the run down of the top ten books:
10 – Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank 27 million copies
9 – Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill 30 million copies.
8 – Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell 33 million copies
7 – Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer 43 Million copies
6 – The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown 57 Million copies
5 – Alchemist by Paulo Coelho 65 Million copies
4 – Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien 103 Million copies
3 – Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling 400 Million copies
2 – Quotations from The Work of Mao Tse Tung by Mao Tse Tung 820 million copies
1 – The Bible 3.9 Million copies.
And the dictionary is not in the top 10 ?
