Ok I am only 10 pages in (Iam trying to read daily) and I use to consider myself a fairley intelligent person but I had to look up around 8 words already. :lol: I somehow feel that when I am done that I will have changed my way of speaking and writing through osmosis.

Check out the IJ wiki. I use as I read and just page down as I go. You can also sign up and add your own input and insight to make it even better.

I have also found the wiki to be extremely helpful, as my cheapo dictionary does not define about half the words that I come across that I don't know! I'm sort of bummed that I have to switch to the computer while I'm reading though... it takes me out of the book mentality so fast.
