Kindleness's awesomeness

One of THE awesome feature of Kindle apart from the fact that you no longer need to wait for a book either in library queue or in shipment when you have an utter butter urge to read  it,  is that you can highlight a word and it displays the dictionary result for that word. Yes synonyms included.

I am not huge on dictionaries, in fact thought it was weird when some one described having a dictionary in every room as a dream so that as they come across a word they can immediately refer for the meaning. Mostly one can make out the meaning of words... atleast my reading has rarely been interrupted for the want of word's meaning.*

But I find myself highlighting words as I browse articles online, except web browser isnt the kindle app!

 PS: before you jump, most of vocab is from GRE word list so it isnt much. 


  1. Wow!!! I have lost count of the numerous times I have highlighted words on my browser...

    My only gripe with the Kindle is when I want to refer back a few pages.....

  2. Mine too ...

    Still it is amazing how right they have got it in the first attempt. it is an amazing app!
