John Fowles and the OED

As indicated earlier, I am reading "John Fowles: The Journals. Volume 1" (2004) edited by Charles Drazin. Here is a quote from page 372:

"I get pleasure too from reading the OED - the pure charm of words. I read slowly through the whole dictionary, missing nothing. Only halfway through C. But life is long."
