When I highlight a word in nook for PC, the context menu offers two choices, "look up" and "look up "look up with wikipedia". Sometimes wikipedia is useful, but it's not a dictionary which is what I really need. When I select "look up", a warning pops up saying "please choose a reference book", but there is no dialog for doing so. Nor is there anything about reference books in settings. Where are the reference books I can choose from, and how do I do so? Thanks!

Once you have a downloaded copy of the MW Pocket dictionary, you may have to open it once to set it as the reference. Theoretically other dictionaries from B&N should work, but....,
And be for warned, the pocket dictionary is pretty mediocre.

I had downloaded and used the MW pocket dictionary on the nook that is also registered with my account, but had not downloaded to this PC. So I did and it works now.
The warning message said to CHOOSE a reference book. I wonder if this means others can be purchased, if not now, in the future?
Thanks for the assistance!

Actually the feature used to work with a number of dictionaries. Notabaly all the MW dictionaries that were sold by the now B&N subsidiary eReader.com, including the Websters unabridged 3d edition. But they screwed it up when the went to version 2 and have never fixed it.
