Vocabulary Builder

vocabularybuilderI love the dictionary feature of Kindles and find that I’m much more likely to look up a word using the Kindle than I was when I read paper books. I’m not sure how much my vocabulary has actually expanded, but I can pretend that I’m learning something.

Newer Kindles keep a list of all the words that you look up in the dictionary while you are reading.┬áHere are some of the words I’ve looked up.

The list goes on, but I’m starting to have flashbacks of the ACTs. Also, I don’t remember the definitions to most of these so apparently it isn’t working very well. The Kindle does have a feature that builds flashcards out of this word list if you really want to get serious about it.
