When I click on "Get Books" in the Calibre toolbar, I get a drop down menu which gives the following choices:
Search for ebooks
Search for this author
Search for this title
Search for this book
Below that is another choice: "Stores" and "Choose stores".
I always use "Search for ebooks" which also provides DRM information.
A problem that can occur is that not only the title of the requested ebook will be given but also similar titles of different books. Maybe this could be solved by putting the title in Quotation marks, but I usually just wade through the given choices.
