The Ring of Words: Tolkien and the Oxford English Dictionary - Gilliver, Marshall, & Weiner, ed.

Question: Can a book be boring, dry, and intriguing at the same time?

Answer: Yes.

It was hard to keep myself reading, but there were some interesting snippets and word studies. In short, I feel educated, but I didn't really enjoy it.

Kind of like Grad school.

A Study in Sherlock - Various  

Many different approaches were taken by the authors in this anthology. In my opinion, most succeed wonderfully, some are OK, and a few fell flat.

Over all, I enjoyed this trip through the many possibilities of Sherlock.
