ABSTRACT
The X-Ray feature available on new editions of Amazon's ereaders could be viewed as a replacement for an index. Comparisons of the details available to readers in X-Ray and in a traditional index show that X-Ray is missing a lot of valuable information, and does not show us, as Amazon claims,"the bones of the book.'
