Just curious if you could you fill me in on the Oxford Hachette dictionary that you have?
There seem to be quite a few of them and I am not clear which one it is that you have..
My Collins is too bulky for everyday look ups.
You referred to the types of books that I read and I thank you for checking up to see the titles. To my way of looking at it, they are all middle of the road standard French literature titles. Nothing technical or too historically anachronistic by way of time period.
The Oxford Hachette you reference on Amazon is indeed what I have. Mine is the 4th edition published 2007. It is my dictionary of last resort before I go to the monolinguals. Your apt word "bully" fits it as well.
