Kindle Vocabulary Builder (Week 3)


It’s been a while since I’ve done a vocabulary builder post, so here’s to another week! Check out my first week here.

If you have a Kindle, then you probably know about the cool vocabulary builder feature it has! Anytime you look up a word’s definition, it’s automatically added to the vocabulary builder, that way you can review, study, and master the words at a later date.

All definitions have been taken from Merriam-Webster. Hopefully you learn a new word!

  1. Does the vocabulary builder feature work on the kindle app? I honestly had no idea this was even a thing but this is so cool. I feel I need to take some time now and explore the app. I always talk about how I want to build my vocabulary. This is the perfect way to do it.

  2. I’ve never heard of cambric and cascara? 🙈 It’s such a good idea to write down new words you come across in books, though, I probably should do that more often as well so that I actually remember them, even if I won’t need them all too often.

    Lovely post, Ashley! ❤

  3. The only word I knew the definition of was acquisitive. Tho I thought cassoulet was a small personal casserole, so I wasn’t that far off! Great post! I have a kindle, but I didn’t know this was a thing! Now I am going to be on the hunt for new words! What a great idea 😀 and great list! I love learning new words (tho I forget most of them right after I learn them haha) Thanks!
