I hope this book is as interesting as it sounds.
Journal Entry 2
Downey, California USA on Thursday, January 11, 2018
This was an interesting piece of history and I certainly learned a lot about words and how they were organized into a dictionary. I found the part about the words to be a bit slow and tedious to read. I did however like the story of the friendship between Murray and Minor. It was terribly sad to learn about Minor's madness. How awful to spend most of your life tortured by paranoia and sick fantasies every night.
