    Not worth it even if it were free !!!!!

    There is no search function. All the index has is alphabets and when one clicks on them, it takes you to the cover. So if you wanted to look for a word, keep flipping pages until you reach the word. Total waste of time and money.

    HOW SAD

    This is so unfortunate. It is impossible to navigate your way around this dictionary. I have this dictionary in hard back and absolutely love it when wanting to know the original meaning of word. I am finding that we are "watering" down the meaning of words, or just changing the meanings completely. So sad. Although the printed version of this is awesome the nook version is completely useless.

    Needs to have a good search system for looking up words

    All you can do is goto the content page and select a letter to go to, then you must flip the pages to find a word. Using the search finds every time that word is used including in other definations, klnd of fustrating and time consuming. And yes I can not spell thats why I want it.

    Search function

    It DOES let you search- if you just tap the letter, it takes you back to the cover(heaven knows why), but if you hold down the letter, the search option appears.
