I think it's silly for people to look down upon those that need a dictionary, no matter the book they are reading.

Even the book "Twilight" was well-known for having quite a lot of SAT words in it.
The Twilight saga's were the books my 13 year old was reading when she found that she needed the dictionary....lol.
