Same problem with this book as dictionary. Words you want to find cannot be easily searched and retrieved. Put in a word and you get dozens of places in the book that word was used but not the original entry. If you find the word by scrolling through a page at a time, Nook will take you to the same page next time you open it. If you are reading the Thesaurus through as a book inorder this will be great. Besides serious English majors in graduate school, I don't know if many people who who want that feature. Buy the hard copy instead of the Nook version of almosy any dictionary or Thesaurus!
