I am fine with reading book-length fanfiction on websites, but my attention evaporates when trying to read an e-book. Even on vacation, I rather take half a bag of physical books with me than go for a convenience of Kindle.

Gail Allen wrote:'synonyms' feature. I used that instead of a dictionary, because it would usually get the point across for me by giving me several words that I probably knew a number of, that meant at least vaguely the same thing. It was really useful actually, because it meant I developed a larger vocabulary by adding not just the word I was 'looking up' but other synonyms as well, and also getting a more comprehensive understanding of words.
