I found out the Kindle logs when you look up words. Of course it actually logs any time you highlight a single word so all those times I’ve accidentally looked up a word like ‘The’ or else done that when trying to highlight a longer sentence show up like I’m in 1st year primary and struggling with the concept of reading :smiley:
