Book Selection

Joslyn Rowe
Professor Murillo
English 101
4 November 2018
1. I have chosen is The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the
Making of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester.
2. I chose the book because when I was younger, I had a really weird obsession with
collecting dictionaries for no reason. When I saw the title it reminded me of all the times I
went to bookstores specifically to hunt them down, and most weren’t even specifically
Oxford dictionaries.
3. I’ll get it from the library or, if they don’t have it in any nearby library, through Amazon
