Kindle Touch select text, copy paste?

Hi.
I am loving my Kindle Touch but one trick I miss from my K3 is being able to select text in a book, then filling it in the search bar to search Wiki or Google.

For example, say the text "deus ex machina" is in a book.
On the K3 or DX, I could select it and have it populate the search bar.

On the Touch, the only way to look up the word(s) is to manually type it myself.

Any workaround for this?

One of many silly interface issues with the Touch.

I just hope it wasn't deliberate because of the 3G limitations.
