Kindle Search Tip

FYI:  Here's a tip on searching with the Kindle app.

With respect to the Kindle version, I was surprised to find that if you want to search for a particular paragraph, such as 41:9, and you enter that in the search field, it will say 0 matches found.

But if instead of 41:9 you enter 41: 9, with a space after the colon, it will locate all the appropriate matches.  This applies even when the paragraph number is more than one digit, such as 41: 10 .

It's a strange glitch, but this workaround may come in handy.

BTW, I'm using the Windows version of Kindle.  Not sure how this behaves on other platforms.

Yep, that's a good tip. I'm not sure it even makes a difference whether you include the colon in the search or just the space.
