First post here and perhaps don't know where to search for an answer so I'll post the question.
I've been using the PC eReader on my XP system through at least a few updates since initial download which included the Merriam-Webster pocket dictionary for word lookup - when the word is highlighted and right-clicked. A feature I had found useful in the past. With the latest update to 220.127.116.1127, I cannot get the feature to work. When I highlight a word and right-click I I get a menu that has "look up" and "lookup in wickopedia". The former pings me with a message saying I need to select a reference book to open and the latter opens up a webpage to wicki - which I really don't want to do.
I can't find a way to attach the Merriam-Webster and can't remember if I had to do that initially. Anyway, can someone point me to where I can find instriuctions to get this thing working again?
BTW, I'm planning on getting a Nook soon but am using the PC eReader in the meantime. Hope it doesn't have this problem.....
Thanks in advance!

Just open a reference book from B&N. Probably the only one you have is M-w Pocket dictionary. Than it will use that one for word lookup.

new here. thx for help with "lookup". guess that means i'll have to buy a dictionary, since no dictionary supplied with latest version reader.
does this imply that i can use a thesaurus, specialized dictionaries or any other reference source that I place in my library.
