Reason #5 why I love my iphone...

Yep this is really in my top 5 reasons why I love my iphone.

I really like to read books that I'm not smart enough to read.

(I attribute this to my piano teacher Mrs. Amermann who made me play songs that were too advanced for me. But once I meddled through it I found such a great sense of accomplishment I felt the need to add this within other parts of my life.)

People are also generally surprised at my inarticulacy, bad spelling and lack of grammar in proportion for my love of reading.

What this all really led to was a very heavy purse which always had the book I was currently reading, and a pocket dictionary and a pocket thesaurus (which I asked for on my birthday during high school).
Ah, but now I have an iphone! My favorite application is dictionary.com! Here is a list of the words that I looked up just during the last 100 pages of Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.

pneumatic
indecorous
sepulchral
bumptious
dolichocephalic
neurasthenia
coquettish

Such a beautiful language. Now I even know how to pronounce the words and their many forms because my dictionary.com app says the words out loud for me.

Ahh technology.(which is a very ironic statement to write after reading Brave New World.)
