What's the purpose of the highlighter?
What's the purpose of highlighter? Why can't I access it? Thanks.

It is called Popular Highlights and it indicates which passages are most frequently highlighted by other Kindle users.
You can turn Popular Highlights off. The feature is located in Settings.
To turn on/off on the Kindle Touch: Press Menu --> Settings --> Reading Options --> Popular Highlights.
Currently: Kindle Touch, iPhone 5, and iPad 3.

Moreover, having popular highlights on makes it hard to find your own as they're intermixed in the default view of bookmarks and highlights.

Shown separate on KFHD
In the PW one can see Popular Highlights separately from one's own notes and bookmarks by using the second Settings Menu. Popular Highlights have a light underline in the text while one's own highlights are shaded in the text. Bookmarks have a folded corner in the upper right.

When I first saw these, I thought they were cool.
After reading a book and having several blocks highlighted, it was a distraction.
