Kindle JE dictionary giveaway

For 5 days only, the Japanese English High Frequency Words Dictionary (for Kindle Paperwhite) is available for free! Please go to Amazon and one-click purchase it. It might work with other Kindles besides the Paperwhite. If it does, please leave a review on Amazon and let everybody know. On Kindle Fire (tablet computers), you cannot set the default dictionary for look ups. Also be aware that the Kindle itself actually does the look up, not the dictionary. The Kindle dis-inflects verbs to the dictionary form before looking it up, so you might not always get the exact word you selected in your book as the result even if that word is in the dictionary. There is nothing that dictionary publishers can do about this.

Here are links to the dictionary:

Japan http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00C4Y7ZSU
Canada https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00C4Y7ZSU

It can be found in 10 Amazon country stores now.

Things like this make me wish I had kept up with Japanese. Thanks for dangling this carrot in front of my nose!

Do you have a Kindle, SanneT?

Yes, I do, a couple of years old with a keyboard. I don’t use it fully, just for reading. As to the dictionary, it would be silly for me to even attempt to get it. My Japanese is in negative values by now, if such a thing were possible :frowning:
