When I long-tap on some text, I want to immediately get option to "Search in Book"

When I long-tap on the screen on some text, a context menu pops up with three things:

Code:
Undo Highlight
Edit/Create note
Search...
When I choose Search...
I'm given another three options:
Code:
Search in book
Search in Google
Search in Wikipedia
I don't ever use Search in Google or Search in Wikipedia. Is there a way to change "Search..." to "Search in Book"? That means, when I long-tap on some text, I immediately get:
Quote:
Undo highlight
Edit/create note
Search in Book

Elektron, thanks so much. Didn't ever think Parental Contrals would come in handy. Lovely "hack".
