Note: These are questions I've answered from KinWorm blog readers. The questions may be shortened for brevity and I won't be posting names, links back to people or any other personal info which is given to me. The answers are based on the Latest Kindle 3 which is updated with the latest firmware but may also work with older Kindle generations.
Q: Sometimes I'm in the middle of reading a book and I suddenly think of something I want to look up online. Is there a quick way to do this?
A: Yes this happens to me quite often. I'm reading away and then I might want to know more about a place described in a book, a historical figure or (if the book isn't grabbing me) I might suddenly think about an upcoming birthday gift I need to search for.
Don't exit the book. Simply type the item you're interested in e.g. King Arthur, then move the 5-way controller across to the right a couple of times and select Google or Wikipedia to look up the item online. This will kick-start the Kindle web browser - so you will need a Wifi connection unless you have the 3G Kindle: UK 3g Kindle / US 3g Kindle
If you only do a short amount of browsing, then it may be quicker to press the Back button a number of times to get back to your book. Otherwise press the Home button and select your book again to resume reading.
