I agree with Harry that books may well be in several categories -- a romantic crime novel, for instance. Is it Romance or is it Myster/Crime?

I just wish it were possible to search and get the sony site to return ONLY the results which match completely.

I sometimes wonder if anywhere there is a single listing of all the books at the Sony site. I wish there were access to it so we could download it (just a simple list of title and author) and do our own searches on it.

I suppose it might be considered a trade secret, however, since it would give not only us but also Sony's competition, exact numbers, which may be something they don't want known.
