Searching books is now painful
You obviously switched search engines for your book section, so now the more terms you enter the more results you get. I'm sure people prefer a Google like search experience where the more text you enter the more your search gets narrowed down. Instead of this primitive Boolean search engine you now use.
For example... If I search for Abraham Lincoln, I do NOT want every book on earth with the name Abraham in it. I want Abraham and Lincoln. Without adding a bunch of Boolean algebra terms. This new search is ridiculous. The more terms you add the worse the search becomes.
Please bring back the old logical search engine!
2 other suggestions:
- Why does the search window pop up, then flash and pop up again? It has always done this. If you type before the screen refreshes (flashes) it'll erase everything you typed in Google Chrome.
- Default to show Public books. Sure, Mormons might be able to access other books, but there is nothing more frustrating to find an old book with your family tree only to be told that only LDS can view the book. I actually want to give you the book I've written, but I don't want it only for LDS members.
In summary, PLEASE restore your old search functions. You might have gotten a better deal on this awful search engine but it's so frustrating to use! Imagine searching google for Apple Pie, and it gave you a million recipes for every type of pie on earth. That's what the Book search engine now does. 😓
