The paper of the dictionary is the same thickness of most paperback books - it's not Bible thin, but it's not heavy duty paper either. The font is teeny tiny - I'm guessing 10 pt - but if you can read most magazine fonts, you're should be okay. I didn't find the font to be any smaller than the font in my issues of Family Circle or Better Homes and Gardens, but it definitely seemed more compressed since this is a dictionary with little white space and no pictures. Overall, great resource if you're looking for a good updated dictionary.
The few complaints regarding the small print seem rather trivial to me. I use reading glasses and am able to read it just fine. I have also purchased reading glasses with a little higher power than I normally use for just those needs. It was long past time that I updated my dictionary and I'm glad I got this one. Now I have one for another 25 years.
