My experience exactly!
I quite enjoy looking up not only words but events or maps, when I find something I don't know or can't quite remember. I look up slang and topical references, and look for pictures of places described -- if the story isn't moving too swiftly for me to stop!
It's great having such easy access to the information that adds richness to my reading experience!
