    When I touch a word in a book and get the box with the definition in it, the printing is very small and fairly faint. Is it possible to make the print larger and more bold. I have cataracts and am 67 years old so my eyes are not as good as they used to be.

    If you're using iBooks (the app), you can increase the text size in Settings - Display & Brightness - Text Size. When you slide to the right, the letters in the app and the definition for the words will become bigger. You can also enable bold text there (below Text Size).

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the answer, but I am using the Kindle App and it does not seem to affect the size of the text or the definition box in that app.

    It's possible to increase the text size there too.

    When you tap a word to find the definition, in the rectangle with the definition tap "Full Definition". This will expand the definition to full screen size, and you'll find the icon at the top left to increase text size there as well (Aa).

    Tapping the " full definition" worked. Thanks for the help. Where is the user's manual located on the mini?

    There's no manual for the Kindle app, afaik. You'll find a few instructions in amazon, there are also FAQ in the app's settings (bottom right).

    There's also the Help & Customer Service that answers questions about Kindle on iPad too.

    I really meant a user's manual for the ipad mini. I have two books, but they don't have indexes to look up things.

    And how do I turn off the notifications so that I don't keep getting e-mails from the forum?

    If you're using Safari to access this forum, tap your username at the top right. A menu will pop up. Select "Preferences" there. One of these will be "... and receive email notifications of replies". You'll see a checkmark next to it. Tap it to disable it:
