The OED has been on my bucket list forever; to find it in a thrift store for $8 was amazing. Especially with both volumes in good shape (the box not so much), and the magnifying glass still in its drawer!
I'm almost past being able to read the super-small print, even with the glass, but it's the fun of just having it in my library.

It's the OED. Why bother with any other dictionary?

Without doubt the greatest lexical achievement produced thus far and probably the best printed dictionary that will ever be (since it'll all be just internets from here on out). Beautifully made, cleanly written, and tremendously researched. Fun just to leaf through, definitive in settling disagreements this is a book more people should spend more time with, myself included.
