eReader Tip Of The Day- Word/Phrase Hunt

On July 21, 2008

Today’s eReader tip is a simple, but useful one…

Say you lost your place in a book but you remember part or all of the last sentence…

Say you read a beautiful paragraph and you want to share it to someone but you just can’t remember where it was. You do, however, remember an unusual word or phrase the author used…

In both cases simply use the built-in search feature to quickly and easily find the word or phrase you seek.

To use…


Tap the bottom of the screen.

Tap the magnifying glass icon.

Input the word or phrase you seek.

Hit "Find".

You can search only the current page and on or you can start the search from the beginning.

It works quickly and well- but remember to spell the words correctly. When I was trying it out I could not figure out why it wasn’t working until I realized that I had typed one of the words in the phrase incorrectly. Once corrected it located the sentence in less than a second.
