The point of this blog is to take our consumer technology and break it down into tiny little pieces. Gradually over the next few weeks I’ll be addressing a few “how to’s” for Kindle Highlights.
But since I became a digital reader, highlights have become an integral part of my reading experience.
I have enabled “popular highlights” on my Kindle. This means that when I am reading a book, I might come across a passage that is lightly dotted and shows that “300 people” (for example) have highlighted this particular portion of text.
Personally I find this interesting to see, but if you find it distracting you can disable it.
To enable/disable Popular Highlights:
On your Paperwhite, just go into your Kindle settings and tap on Reading Options. There you will find the opportunity to turn “Popular Highlights” on or off.
