An Even More Expensive OED!

A few weeks ago, I wrote about Amazon having a good price on the Oxford English Dictionary–the world’s largest (and I think safe to say best) dictionary.
Well, today I was checking around and found they have a special Blue Leather edition. And at $6,295.00 it makes the regular edition at $877.10 seem cheap!

Wow. I imagine there are word lovers out there willing to buy a special edition for over $6k, but would they ever dare open it?!

My cunning plan is, once we buy a new house (latest estimate puts that at 10 years down the road) and I actually have shelfspace, I will buy a set.

Of course that will be the $800 version.
