Book Description

Ever play a word game and need to find a word that ends in Q, W or Z? Most dictionaries present the word lists in alphabetical order, sorted by the first letter of a word. BackWords is unique because you can easily search words using the last letter. It's useful for school libraries and handy for building vocabularies or for playing word games and completing crossword puzzles. It's a great gift-giving idea for those word gamers you love. If you like word games, writing songs, or creating poetry, you just might love BackWords.

NOTE: Two reviewers said that the index isn't linking properly in their Kindles. We've since revised it to work with Kindle's "Active Table of Contents" and "Go To" guide items. If you have further ideas for making it more useful, please let us know!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly handy 24 April 2012
By John - Published on
I am an avid Scrabble player, and have been playing regularly for more than 20 years. This product gives me a unique tool for a common problem. Many times I have needed to play a high point word but couldn't find a place to put the word. This approach of using the end letter for the search makes it a lot easier. I have seen a lot of word books, but find this one much more useful than most.

5.0 out of 5 stars !NO KCOR 8 July 2011
By missybabe - Published on
If you didn't catch the title it was "Rock on!" backwards.. That might be a little clever, but it's nothing compared to the brilliant idea behind this book. It seems to be a simple concept - listing words by their ending letter rather than their beginning - and in the end it probably is, but the value of having everything logically put together in a single book quickly made it a resource in my collect. To top it off there's even a handy-dandy iPhone app for kicking @ss on the fly.

Looking to bump up your scrabble game and learn some new words in the process? Then I'd highly recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea But Not For Kindle 17 Jan. 2012
By Cindy Morin - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently have become an avid Words With Friends Player so am not yet up on all the unique words for this game. I thought this book would be so helpful I purchased it for my Kindle. I however am very dissatisfied with the Kindle Version as it does not contain the Table of Contents. It takes way too long to page through the book to get to the letter ending that you want. I did also purchase the paperback but which I had not wasted my money on the Kindle version.

I constantly refer to this book especially when I am stuck with odd letters. The book informed me about extreme possibilities which I never imagined. Have retained this book on my kindle as one of my favorites. Highly recommend this book to those who enjoy word puzzles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed 12 Dec. 2012
By Yasmin C. Spiegel - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good "go to" to get you out of tight situations when you want that extra score space, but can't think of a word to "end in.....". Now I have a dictionary that lets me "back into" my turn. It is really a reverse dictionary, being organized with the last letters in alphabetical order. You still have to hunt if you are looking for "em" rather than "tam", but it isn't too onerous. Glad for another tool to strengthen my game.
