Mom sent me a nice one a couple years ago. I just can't find any of the words I come across in the thing.

I like to use dictionary.com for the harder to find words.

We use Merriam-Webster online - m-w.com

For our paper copy, I LOVE the new updated American Heritage Dictionary.  I couldn't afford the CD-rom edition, but I'm going to upgrade to it sometime.
