As my sister will tell you, I often read the dictionary through just as you would any other book. You find some of the strangest things in there...and more words are bound to stick in your head than if you had never read it at all! <br /><br />Besides, if he reads it through not once, but twice, instead of doubling the number of words he learns, it may well triple it. And if he reads it through three times (reading back over his favorite parts, of course! ;D) well, you can imagine. <br /><br />However, I don't know that he will necessarily read it all the way through. From what I've heard of it, it makes for some heavy reading, and even scanning through it could take him some time.
