-I-m reading the OED so you don-t have to,- says Ammon Shea on his slightly masochistic journey to scale the word lover-s Mount Everest: the Oxford English Dictionary. In 26 chapters filled with sharp wit, sheer delight, and a documentarian-s keen eye, Shea shares his year inside the OED, delivering a hair-pulling, eye-crossing account of reading every word.
