in some ways this item is very impressive: It fits in books very well and it is a genuinely good concept. However, it is let down by a key problem touched on be several other reviewers: an apparent failure to find a lot of words. Below I will describe the problem, how to get around this problem, and I will then summarize the impact of the problem on the user (in this case, my son of 7).

The instructions claim that the device contains all the words in the Collins dictionary. The reality is that it will fail to find a lot of words that if you were to enter into the Collins online dictionary it would find immediately. As an example: Extent. This is found immediately on the online dictionary but searching on the bookmark will return a totally different word. And this is where many of the reviewers before me are noting that it is missing words. Actually the words are there, at least in some of the cases, but you have to do some additional work to find them because of a software bug.

The word 'extent', for instance, is actually a sub-entry that can be found after a lot of scrolling under the word 'extend'. This is not nearly as friendly as the online dictionary, which finds the word immediately. And you will recall from above that entering 'extent' does not actually return the word 'extend' either. it brings up an unrelated word. Hence, it is even more confusing.

Basically there is a bug in the software. The search actual brings up the next word in its database rather than the one that contains the sub-word. This is a bug, and it is bad enough that it should have been fixed. If you look at the instructions it has a small section that explains this problem away as if it is acceptable.

buying the dictionary was a flawless experience. It looked an interesting product as a gift for my 9 yr old for xmas. I played around with it and it seems to work well and is intuitive to use, but the screen is a little small, but that is just me being hyper-critical. My son is happy, so I'm happy with it and happy to recommend it.

I was given this as a Christmas present, and it has proved pretty helpful. The bookmark is stylish, easy to use and is thin and light weight so does not impact upon the pages in a book that is being carried around. Obviously it cannot include all words though, but I like it and so does my mum who asked for one for her birthday.

Wish I had had one of these when I was younger. Bought for my sons(9 and 11) so that when they are reading alone and dont know a word they can look up. They love them too.

Hi there,

Bought this gadget for my 11 year old grandson - he got it yesterday(Christmas day) He and we think it is an ideal word checker for an avid reader. It is so convenient sitting in the book you are reading and instantly available for use. The ordering process, once I got away from Gizmo site (still don't know how I gort there!!) and their inflated price (£19.99) - and there complicated basket system which finished with me ordering twice before later cancelling both and getting back to Amazon where I started the search. Also
bought 2 x Primeval (Nos 4 and 5) from you. Your price delivery etc is absolutely first class on all three items.

My wife and I are so impreseed with the dictionary book mark we will probably end up buying one for ourselves. A super little "gadget". Many thanks.
