Here’s a tip from blog reader Phil….thanks!
Howdy- I subscribe to your Trivia of the Day and Free Books blogs on my Kindle and like both of them a lot. Recently on the Free Books blog you gave some tips for the Kindle and asked readers for more. One of the tips you gave was to put the cursor beside a word and press the Return key to go the definition of the word in the dictionary. To that I can add this: When you’re on that definition page in the dictionary, press the Return key once more and you get a list of 25 words. The first word is the one you got the definition of, and it is followed by the next 24 words in the dictionary. This is a great way to find different forms of a word, and expressions that start with that word. Use the cursor to go up and down the list and press the 5-way to go to a word’s definition. Use the Next Page and Prev Page keys to go forward and back in the list.
