Arrow Kobo Store: Searching, browsing and discovering - observations & suggestions.

I think the Kobo Store is great if you know exactly what you are looking for: You enter the Author / Title / ISBN / ... and you can buy that publication.

If I want to discover new books/authors, I have to resort to Amazon. That's just one aspect, and I find this is pretty hard to put into words. So maybe anyone who thinks that the store experience could be improved please help me to put that into words and into more specific suggestions.

The first suggestion I have is concerning the search: It really should be a bit stricter in terms of what is displays as search results.

Example 1: A search for the author named "Bronson Lemer". 341 results although there is only one single book published by this author. Should be 1 "good" result with maybe 10 remotely close matches, separated by a line or space.

Example 2: A search for the author named "Steven Zeeland". He has published several books, but none have been published as electronic books so far. This search yields 4155 results (apparently anything containing the term "Steven"), although there should really be 0 results.
