If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
It depends on the edition I am reading. If I am reading from my Kindle and/or Sony, then yes, I will look up the definition right away. If it is a print copy, I may look it up at a later time. What I try to do is read the sentence/paragraph and try to figure out the meaning from the context. Sometimes there isn’t the opportunity of having a dictionary at hand, for example if I am reading at a doctor’s office or waiting in the car waiting for my husband to “run in, I’ll only be a second” at one of his favorite stops like Home Depot/Lowe’s because I know that his second gives me at least 30 min of reading time.
