Suggestion

You've got a nice little guide. Not sure if it's getting added to anymore, but how about putting a link to the file Kindle-Tips-for-K4-NT-1st-Edition.mobi in the beginning of the book?

Kind of like the The Magic Catalog of Project Gutenberg E-Books or Mobile Reads very own Mobipocket Download Guide. You could easily download the latest K4 Tips.

Cheers!

You could just subsribe to this thread and you know when it gets updated instead of trying to download the book again in the hope it got updated. Except that link would always refer to the 1st edition as it is part of the file name, not?

Hello
I would like to ask if there is any way to force the "Search This book" option to ignore the capital letters ?
By now "Book" is not the same as "book"

No. The Kindle's search mechanism is not case-sensitive.

I'd like to have search just for titles and authors. It makes no sense to look through all the books content to find a book. It takes ages since I keep almost all my library in kindle so I can read any book I want without needing to transfer it.

No ideas how to manage that?

Or how to search for an exact word and not every similar word too which gives massive results again which is not useful at all.

Kindle search is good if you want massive amount of results instead of the few results you were actually looking for. I look for a specific title and it sometimes gives almost all my books in results since they all have that word somewhere in the content. So it takes minutes to get results, at least hits in title/ author are first in the list or it would be completely impossible to find a book even if you know both author and title. You can only hope the title has very rare word, then results are given pretty quick.

Anyone mastered the kindle search and can share the tips and secrets? Or where are none?

Which one is the Kindle 4 nt? I can't figure it out from the Amazon page. I would never buy an eBook reader that has a touch screen, but I wouldn't mind having a next generation from my 3 that is nt.

It's the Kindle that is $69 dollars. There is a Silver and Black version. The Black has better QC.
