No, I don't use a dictionary when reading a book because I find it time consuming. I just try to understand what is being said by understanding the whole thought of the sentence. And when reading online, I use synonyms.

yup, i always have a dictinary handy whenever im reading a book. or even when im surfing. english is not my native language, so whenever i see a word that i dont know, i look it up. otherwise i wouldn't be able to fully understand what im reading.

I used to check the dictionary when I encountered any word I did not know, but over time I just grew lazy and guessed at the meaning of words

I have an electronic dictionary. Even though I can read the book and have a understanding of what the word means, I will not use to learn it if I do not know the definition of this word. Thus, yes, I do use a dictionary when I am reading.
