This new edition features a wider selection of advanced words, science and technological words, as well as words on topics that have become more popular since the last update, such as computers and the Internet. New entries include abate, aboriginal, closure, efficacy, intuitive, misanthrope, preponderance, rapacious, raspy, sophistry, trenchant, viscous, vitriol, and more. With thousands of new entries and updates to existing entries, The Facts On File Student's Thesaurus, Third Edition is the perfect resource for junior and high school students looking for a concise, easy-to-use thesaurus.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
