If I repeated the search placing Halloween in quotes, I got what I originally expected ... only books with Halloween in the title; 187 of them.

Strange search algorithms at work here!
Weird though that searching "halloween" without quotes doesn't work. And where does it get the results from that it does show?

Can't recall the title but I was looking for, but nothing remotely close to yours.
Yep, me too. Also can't remember what I was searching for either.
