It is simple to make this the default dictionary in Kindle instead of the bundled one.
At its heart, It is a standalone full copy of the Collegiate Dictionary, and can also be fully accessed as a separate book within Kindle. This makes browsing enjoyable, not just of its listings (including such pictures as dictionaries have) but also its supplemental materials.
When using it as a writer (I know the word, but not its spelling, nor if I completely understand the word I seek to use) and not as a reader, I would have been more pleased if those who had added electronic usability had also made it more intuitive to those of us with poorer ability to spell by more simply allowing the browsing for a word as is done with a paper dictionary. Yes, the pages are there exactly as they are in the paper version, but, for me, the electronics are not as good as the physical movement of the pages or groups of pages. It might be that adding a line which could be dragged at the top to change the pages displayed would further improve this.
So, I recommend hardcover type dictionary even it's very heavy :) However, when I opened the dictionary at first... I'm very shocked for so bad condition/quality... One page is severely corrupted (It's not second hand). I think Amazon is not bad. It's just publisher's problem. In actually, I'd like to request to change. But, I'm in Japan... so let it go (If I request to change the new one, I have to wait 2 more weeks... I need the dictionary "NOW", it's not next month). I know it's very rare case, it's not so much (I had never seen that condition on English books. It's first time). I think dictionary is the most important book in all books. If this likely rare condition is on a kind of novel, I was not so much shocked. So, I recommend that if you want to buy a dictionary, real book store (not online) is better, because we can check the condition before buying it.
I've always wondered, why and how dictionaries get away with this. Obviously the reason I am looking up a word is that I do not know what it means, so the definition should probably not include the very word itself.
The other reason it is so handy, is sometimes, not even the spell check can find the correct spelling for certain words, for me. When I have this come up, the dictionary comes out. I ALWAYS find in it what the computer does not! My dictionary is always on the left side of my desk. It is invaluable.
