    Hi MizB. That is a good feature of electronic books.

    I am in the process of writing an historical fiction and wondering about words and terms that might effect the feeling of authenticity.

    Hi Denise. The Outer Banks are so beautiful -- I bet that was quite a lovely time you spent there. I agree with you on the use of archaic or obscure words. Thanks for participating, Denise..
