So I've recently been having a fair number of searches fail, on books big enough that I was fairly confident goodreads would have decent data on. For example, this book just came up empty for me, with this response:

Code:
calibre, version 0.9.29
ERROR: No matches found: <p>Failed to find any books that match your search. Try making the search <b>less specific</b>. For example, use only the author's last name and a single distinctive word from the title.<p>To see the full log, click Show Details.

So, to try and get around it, I put the goodreads:12637490 ID in manually, and run again, still failure:

And it says it can't find title/authors from the book page, though from what I'm seeing it looks perfectly filled out. So I try putting in the ID of another edition, and it magically works just fine. So I assume some sort of glitch on a few of the edition pages, which now that I understand I can work around easily enough, but I don't recall this being an issue before and I'm seeing it often enough I thought I'd bring it to your attention
