How to Search in a Book on Your Kindle Fire

Want to find that earlier reference to a character so that you can keep up with a plot? Or do you want to find any mention of Einstein in an e-encyclopedia? To find words or phrases in a book on your Kindle Fire, you can use the Search feature.

Follow these steps to search a book:

  1. With a book open, tap the page to display the Option bar, if necessary.

  2. Tap the Search button in the Option bar.

    The Search dialog box and onscreen keyboard are displayed.

If you’d rather search the web, press a word or phrase to highlight it, and then in the resulting dialog box, tap the More button. At this point, you can tap either Search in Book, Search Wikipedia, or Search Google.

The Google option takes you to search results for the term in the Google search engine, and the Wikipedia option takes you to the entry in the popular online encyclopedia that matches your search term. Tap the Back button when you want to return to the e-reader app.
